[Synopsis] (Taken from goodreads)
Alice in Wonderland goes to a new high school…..
Heartshire High is a modern-day retelling of Alice in Wonderland, and debut novel by up-and-coming young author Charlotte Leonetti.
Heartshire High takes the reader through Celia’s move to a new town in her senior year, living with a less than caring dad, dealing a new school and having to make new friends. While Celia is focused on just surviving her last school year, and counting down the days until graduation, Bunni befriends her and leads her into the woods, and into a world of drugs, parties, and death.
Once Celia discovers the mysterious death of Tim, she can’t help but dig into what happened. While the whole town tries to ignore what happened, Celia starts to ask questions which lead to her having even more questions. What really happened to Tim? Was it murder? Is somebody not telling the truth? Or is she prying into something she shouldn’t be?
(DISCLAIMER: This is my opinion only, may contain spoilers for the book, may contain coarse language)
- The concept was really interesting
- The writing style was actually pretty good too
- But I generally didn’t like mystery books, thats why I didn’t have an easy time getting through the book
