The Looking Glass Wars - Frank Beddor What a wonderful book! Alice in Wonderland has always been one of my favorite books. For that reason, I put off reading this for a long time. As with all retold stories, the author took some liberties but stayed true to each character. It was truly a joy watching Alyss grow up from a over privileged like brat into someone you could see as a possible queen. I loved all the characters accept the one you were supposed to hate. The world was so very detailed that you could see the everything clearly in your mind. And unlike some authors, Mr. Beddor didn't have to go on for the pages for you to get the picture.I would argue this being a YA book. While the story that inspired this book was a children's book, this one is not. It's full of politics, blood baths, love, and revenge. It reminds us that even if you are a full grown adult, you have the power to change your life and the world. All you need is a little imagination
