Overview

Long before she was the terror of Wonderland the infamous Queen of Hearts she was just a girl who wanted to fall in love.
Long before she was the terror of Wonderland, she was just a girl who wanted to fall in love. Catherine may be one of the most desired girls in Wonderland, and a favorite of the unmarried King of Hearts, but her interests lie elsewhere. A talented baker, all she wants is to open a shop with her best friend. But according to her mother, such a goal is unthinkable for the young woman who could be the next queen.

Then Cath meets Jest, the handsome and mysterious court joker. For the first time, she feels the pull of true attraction. At the risk of offending the king and infuriating her parents, she and Jest enter into an intense, secret courtship. Cath is determined to define her own destiny and fall in love on her terms. But in a land thriving with magic, madness, and monsters, fate has other plans.

In her first stand-alone teen novel, the "New York Times"-bestselling author dazzles us with a prequel to "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.""

Before she was the Queen of Hearts in Carrolls Alices Adventures in Wonderland, she was Catherine, the spirited daughter of royalty, destined to wed the King of Hearts but determined to set up shop as a baker with her best friend and longtime maid. In this whimsical standalone tale, readers follow Catherines simultaneous courtships with the jovial king and his court joker, Jest, whose earnest boyishness makes him far more charming than his royal boss. Caught between her own desires and her mothers stop-at-nothing goal to make her daughter queen, Catherine must decide how much she will risk for a future with Jest. Meyers Wonderland is a fun and more refined version of Carrolls, and readers will enjoy the obvious parallels. Jest and Catherine have a playfully clandestine relationship, but its a slow build-up to the inevitable clash between what Catherine wants and what reality demands. Meyers worldbuilding is extensive and impressive, and the persistent threat of a destructive Jabberwock lends tension, but the story lacks the high-stakes danger that fans of the Lunar Chronicles have come to expect. Ages 12up. Agent: Jill Grinberg, Jill Grinberg Literary Management. (Nov.)
