The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor

What if a little girl named Alyss fell into our world and told her story to a man named Lewis Carroll? What if he wrote her story down as "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and had it published? What if an adult Alyss had to return to Wonderland to fight the evil queen Redd? How could she return and would she be able to find a place in the land of her birth? The answers to these questions are the basic premise of the book.

If that didn't seem like enough of a plot to keep going for over 350 pages it is because it isn't. The plot drags horribly and the amount of filler tangents that have little to add to the book far outweigh the true story. The writing is very poor and sloppy, heavily overusing certain words and lacking any kind of pacing.

My dreadful reading experience makes me wonder if I am reading the same book so many folks are raving about!
