The series that every wonderland fan has been waiting for is here!

From the cover notes:

The Liddle family has never been normal. Even before Alice would meet her future husband, Lewis, her mind was haunted by secrets of her dark past. Alice tried to live a normal life and raise a family with two beautiful children, Calie and Johnny. But it was only a matter of time before Alice’s past caught up with her. Upon learning that the nightmarish realm of Wonderland has been targeting her family through her mind, Alice sacrificed herself, finally ending the nightmare… Or so she thought.

After her mother’s suicide and the murder of her father at her brother’s hands, Calie Liddle sacrificed her brother, Johnny, to the realm of Wonderland. Now, Johnny – alone and scared – is trapped in the hellish landscape. What will become of him and what will become of the Liddle bloodline?

Alice’s Sister

sister  Alice’s Sister by Jessica Young.

  Published by Turning Point (an imprint of WordTech), 2013.

  Paperback.

  ISBN 978-1625490384

  A collection of poems focusing on the story of Alice’s older sister Mary, told through      several voices. There’s a full and positive review on the Lewis Carroll Society of North America’s website, and there’s an interview with the writer here.

From the blurb:

We have all imagined it–our daytime activities reappear, twisted, in our dreams at night. What, then, drove Alice to dream of bodily distortions and dangerous adults? What is happening in her waking life to cause this darkness? Reimagined using details from Carroll’s original work, Jessica Young’s collection ALICE’S SISTER focuses on Alice’s older sister, Mary, and the trouble she faces–the quiet, shadowy disturbances–that affects everyone around. It seems the rabbit hole goes much farther down than we thought. Employing ambitious writing techniques such as rotating narrators, Young invites us in for the descent.

Available on Amazon.
