She was asked to write the book to commemorate the th anniversary of the book. In this version, Alice has been knocked unconscious after she falls down the stairs at a sleepover. The book is quite hard to understand when you first start to read but you eventually understand it as you read further into the book; it makes the story more interesting and fun to read. This is because it cuts from Alice in hospital, to the sleepover and then to Wonderland. The words used are not difficult or complex.

Alice is a little too Marmite for some tastes, and I totally understand if a certain film or stage adaptation or past edition of the book itself put you off for life. Despite that leap, in some respects Cathy is on solid ground with Looking Glass Girl , tackling some of the staples of her past success — issues like fitting in, bullying and peer pressure, friendship and first-love.

But here she gets to do all that in a slightly darker setting, immersing herself into that labyrinth of wrong turns Carroll carved out all those years before. It appears effortless for all the carefully-constructed content, Cathy subtly inter-weaving various characters from the original text into her narrative, suggesting similarities between them and her own creations.

But an accident suddenly changes everything and Alice is rushed to hospital. As her friends and family rally round, a mystery begins to unravel. Was Alice pushed, and why? Who would want to hurt her? Get ready to fall down the rabbit hole all over again…. I would reccomend this to anyone but I feel like it relates to early teens the most. I just finished reading this book for the 10th time! It is so good, I feel like the book swallowed me into it and turned it live-action! I love my family, I love my animals, my home and my work. Looking-Glass Girl.
