In L.L. McKinney’s fantasy series reimagining Alice in Wonderland, an Atlanta teenager fights monstrous creatures in a dark version of Wonderland by night–and balances high school, friends, and family in the mortal world by day. And living such a complicated double life could cause Alice to lose her head…literally.
