Looking-Glass Girl by Cathy Cassidy - review
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….
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.

Looking Glass Girl
To celebrate the th anniversary of Alice in Wonderland , a compelling modern-day re-imagining of Alice's story by every girl's favourite author, Cathy Cassidy. Alice is thrilled when Savannah invites her to a Wonderland-themed sleepover; she's wanted to join this circle of friends for so long. Finally, she's fitting in.

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. For a recent in-depth interview with Cathy Cassidy on this blog, head here. And for more about the author, her past work and forthcoming book events and visits, try her website. I love the cover too by my lovely friend Erin Keen.

ГЛАВА 33 Токуген Нуматака смотрел в окно и ходил по кабинету взад-вперед как зверь в клетке. Человек, с которым он вступил в контакт, Северная Дакота, не звонил. Проклятые американцы. Никакого представления о пунктуальности.
- Надо думать. Есть различие, которое мы все время упускаем. Что-то очень простое. - Ой, дорогие мои… - сказала вдруг Соши. Она открыла на экране второе окно и просматривала остальную часть документов Лаборатории вне закона. - В чем дело? - спросил Фонтейн.
Дальше бежать было некуда. Как трасса, на продолжение которой не хватило денег, улочка вдруг оборвалась. Перед ним была высокая стена, деревянная скамья и больше.
Он посмотрел вверх, на крышу трехэтажного дома, развернулся и бросился назад, но почти тут же остановился.
