Ever Alice by H.J. Ramsay is a darker YA Fantasy Retelling of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland!
“Alice’s stories of Wonderland did more than raise a few eyebrows—it landed her in an asylum. Now at 15 years of age, she’s willing to do anything to leave, which includes agreeing to an experimental procedure. When Alice decides at the last minute not to go through with it, she escapes with the White Rabbit to Wonderland and trades one mad house for another: the court of the Queen of Hearts. Only this time, she is under orders to take out the Queen. When love, scandal, and intrigue begin to muddle her mission, Alice finds herself on the wrong side of the chopping block.”

How I Read It: eARC from NetGalley
*Disclaimer: I requested a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All of my reviews contain my honest opinions only and are not influenced in any way.*
I love Alice Retellings, especially if they involve mental health.
We follow the main character as she is caught in an asylum after being accused of being crazy when she tells the tales of Wonderland. This somewhat-creepy retelling continues back again when she escapes the asylum and enters into the world of Wonderland herself.
Little does she expect that it may not be the saving-grace she thought.
We get to revisit the characters turned dark as she ventures around and kinds herself on a daunting mission to kill the Queen.
I enjoyed the storyline and how it did keep most of the characters but with a darker twist. This deserves the full 5 out of 5 stars.
