Alyssa Gardner skewers bugs so she won’t have to hear them talk.  Like all the women in her family, she suffers from a distinctive madness - a madness that’s afflicted her family since young Alice Liddell emerged from Wonderland and told her adventures to a man named Lewis Carroll. But soon Alyssa discovers that Wonderland is real, and if she enters, she may have a chance to cure her mother and herself of this madness forever.  So long as she stays alive, of course. Splintered by A G. Howard is a delightful romp through a wild and exquisite world, with a plot that twists and turns, a heroine that thinks for herself, and suitably creepy cameos from the Mad Hatter, White Rabbit, et al.  (Before this book, I never thought of the hookah-smoking caterpillar as attractive, but in Howard’s Wonderland, the caterpillar has turned into a Brandon Lee look-alike with silky black wings and a top hat.)  Now that is a Wonderland a girl can love.
