Book Review: Splintered
By: Haley Troha
Splintered, by A.G. Howard, is a modern fantasy twist on Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. If you like the Lunar Chronicles (written by Marissa Meyer) you’ll probably enjoy this trilogy. It’s about Alyssa Gardener, who is far from normal. She can hear the conversations of bugs and plants. What at first seems to be a figment of imagination proves to be a darker secret revolving around a world that only she and her asylum inmate mother can hear. Along with her loyal friend, Jeb, and a mysterious moth from her past, she takes the plunge into Wonderland to rid her family of a curse that has haunted her family for generations. This book is super fun, and I highly recommend it. It is part of a trilogy, and there is also one companion novella.
