Description: Henry has never believed the stories his sister told about Wonderland. He always thought that something horrific had happened to her and her tales were her coping method. He refused to believe in the lies she told. Then, Henry finds himself in the middle of Wonderland with no way of escaping. He must find the Hatter if he has any hopes of returning to his own world. However, Hatter has his own agenda and things get even more complicated when feelings start to spark between them.

What I think about it: It was not what I thought it was going to be, however, that doesn't mean that it was terrible. I actually enjoyed this story. It seemed like it was lacking in certain areas but it made up for it in others. So while I didn't like the climax (I thought it was a bit underwhelming), I loved the world building and the overall flow of the plot. I also fell in love with the characters, especially Hatter.  I disliked the instalove at the beginning but then it grew on me and I came to love it. 

In Conclusion: I'm giving this a 3.5 stars because of the lag at what was supposed to be the peak of the novel and the insta-love thing at the beginning.
