ALICE IN ZOMBIELAND
In the first in her White Rabbit Chronicles, Showalter introduces Alice, a young woman whose entire life has just changed. Readers will love the brave girl trying to reclaim her life, even as they find the Alice in Wonderland references a little overwhelming.
Alice Bell has lost everything — her parents, her younger sister and her belief that monsters don’t exist — all in one night. Alice must learn to live without them as she becomes the monsters’ next target. With the help of the school bad boy, Cole Holland, and the rest of his crew, Alice will fight the evil chasing her and avenge her family.
