"Splintered (Splintered, #1)" by A.G. Howard
Alyssa has always been an outcast due to her connection with Alice Liddell, the inspiration for Alice in Wonderland. Because of this she only has two friends, Jenara and Jeb, her neighbors. However, Jeb has a terrible girlfriend who is super mean to Alyssa. And Jeb tells Alyssa to try being nice to Taelor!!
I hated, and still hate, Jeb for that. REALLY?!?! You're gonna tell your BEST FRIEND to be nice to your GIRLFRIEND who is a complete BITCH to her? REALLY?
This is pretty much why I don't like Jeb. He tells Alyssa to pity his bitchy girlfriend, is overbearing, acts like he can tell Alyssa what to do, goes behind her back, and is pretty much a complete ass!! I mean, Morpheus isn't totally innocent, but at least he can be a bit more honest. Plus he has blue hair, what's not to love?
So during the Wonderland adventure, Jeb acts like he knows everything, when in reality, he knows FUCKING NOTHING! I just wanted to strangle him. And then he would get all flirty with Alyssa and shit, while he had a girlfriend. What? WHAT?
I need to stop discussing that or else I'll have an aneurysm or something.
Bad ass! She knew that she had to find Wonderland, and she did. She did what she had to do and didn't want anyone to get in her way. However, Jeb got in her way. Little piece of shit.
I'm pretty sure I'm Team Morpheus, because Jeb is a little shit and Morpheus is slightly more honest. I'm not sure if I trust him yet, but I like him more.
Piece of shit.
Overall, besides Jeb, I loved this book! It was such a dark, creepy, and amazing retelling of Alice in Wonderland. I can't wait to see what creepiness happens next, but as long as Morpheus is there, I'll be happy.
