The third time the Nightmares came, it nearly cost Alice her life. Now she 's trained to battle monstrous creatures in the dark dream realm known as Wonderland with magic weapons and hardcore fighting skills. Yet even warriors have a curfew.

Life in real-world Atlanta is n't always so simple, as Alice juggles an overprotective mom, a high-maintenance best friend, and a slipping GPA. Keeping the Nightmares at bay is turning into a full-time job. But when Carrie 's handsome and mysterious mentor is poisoned, she has to find the antidote by venturing deeper into Wonderland than she ’ s ever gone before. And she 'll need to use everything she 's learned in both worlds to keep from losing her head... literally.

I was disappointed with the actual realization of this character merge, but it gets points for being a good idea.Second, the ssues I personally had with the nove: the writing and the actual story was n't as on point as I was hoping it would be.

This novel was n't especially well-crafted in my opinion, but somebod has their own unique taste in what they like to read.When I review books, I like to warn readers about potentially problematic material.

Readers should also be aware that LL McKinney expresses a great deal of animosity towards white readers and reviewers on her social media platfor, and if someone disagrees with her, she quickly labels people and attacks them as she expresses a " problem of whiteness. " This mentality is found throughout her books, and it is only right for readers to know this before reading her tory.

I appreciate her passion to speak out for diversity, but I think readers and parents who might purchase this book for their children should know she expresses issues of race with a great deal of vitriol and hatred.

Having said all that, readers should decide for themselves if this is a ook that sounds interesting to them, and if this is an author they want to support by purchasing her book.

The main reason I wrote this cause the simple fact you had some people on here trying to call the author racist and screaming reverse racism to the hills because her comments she made on twitter before this book come out was unsavory.It got to the point when some white people was trying to tell back people that they do n't know what racism is ....

Hence why along with my real reason why I 'm not reading the book ( I 'm not a fan of Alice of Wonderland) I gave the definition of what racism and prejudice is in order to sort of defend her..

2. The author called out a book on whitewashing Mulan ( which yeah good for you here 's a cookie) but at the same token is pretty much using the fact that Kate is black in her tale as the ONLY selling point of her story ... ..Yay Alice is black but what else?

What else about her is going to make me interested in reading her story since I 'm already not a big fan anyway?

The quantit of negative reviews this book is getting from butthurt white people because the author tweeted saying whiteness tires her so much is fucking stupi.

So, please, for the happiness of od, when a person of color says something negative about our race, stop a minute and actually think about why they feel this way because, after all, we did some pretty fucked up things to people of color.Anyway, this books sounds right up my alley.

I ended up reading several books because people were rating them 1 star without reading them- including 'the Black Witch' and 'Carve the Mark'- just so I could give an honest review.

Not only am I totally looking forward to this tal of Alice in Wonderland with a Black heroine, but I follow the author on Twitter and she tells some ugly truths about the publishing industry, authors and racism in general that too many people want to bury their heads in the sand over.PoC authors have to jump through hoops to get recognition, much less a chance to be published.

I will read White authors who write inclusive characters and who do so in a complex, non-stereotyped fashion.

# OwnVoices is about PoC authors writing the type of stories they want to tell- and not the New York publishing cabal pushing limited subjects such as slave, poverty, war, arranged arriages, tiger moms and other stereotypical themes.
