Man, yesterday was a ridiculously exciting day for books, and I think we're still recovering! But on to business! Our Waiting on Wednesday pick for this week, is A.G. Howard's Unhinged. This is the sequel to her excellent Splintered, a book we were lucky enough to read last year!
Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine. It's a meme that allows book bloggers to talk about which titles they're most looking forward to!
Alyssa Gardner has been down the rabbit hole and faced the bandersnatch. She saved the life of Jeb, the guy she loves, and escaped the machinations of the disturbingly seductive Morpheus and the vindictive Queen Red. Now all she has to do is graduate high school and make it through prom so she can attend the prestigious art school in London she's always dreamed of.
That would be easier without her mother, freshly released from an asylum, acting overly protective and suspicious. And it would be much simpler if the mysterious Morpheus didn’t show up for school one day to tempt her with another dangerous quest in the dark, challenging Wonderland—where she (partly) belongs.
As prom and graduation creep closer, Alyssa juggles Morpheus’s unsettling presence in her real world with trying to tell Jeb the truth about a past he’s forgotten. Glimpses of Wonderland start to bleed through her art and into her world in very disturbing ways, and Morpheus warns that Queen Red won’t be far behind.
If Alyssa stays in the human realm, she could endanger Jeb, her parents, and everyone she loves. But if she steps through the rabbit hole again, she'll face a deadly battle that could cost more than just her head.
Yeah, we're stoked.
Unhinged will be released in 2014 from Amulet. While you're waiting, why not check out A.G. Howard's delightfully creepy website or her twitter account?
