HeartlessHeartless (Feiwel and Friends Book, 2016) by Marissa Meyer is quite the interesting look at Wonderland. Meet Catherine who has caught the eye of the unmarried King of Hearts, but would rather be a baker, plus she’s rather too fascinated by the king’s new joker. Cath’s parents, of course, want her to marry the king. But Cath knows she’s the best baker in the realm. What’s a girl to do?
There’s also the familiar character of the Cheshire Cat and the White Rabbit and the Jabberwocky, but not like you’ve ever seen before. I loved this story and had difficulty putting it down. I think Lewis Carroll would have approved. And I’d love to see it made into a movie.
RenegadesMarissa Meyer is also the New York Times bestselling author of the amazing Lunar Chronicles. Read about them and the author here. Marissa’s newest book, Renegades, comes out in November.
