Long before she was the terror of Wonderland—the infamous Queen of Hearts—she was just a girl who wanted to fall in love.

Long before she was the terror of Wonderland, she was just a girl who wanted to fall in love. Catherine may be one of the most desired girls in Wonderland, and a favorite of the unmarried King of Hearts, but her interests lie elsewhere. A talented baker, all she wants is to open a shop with her best friend. But according to her mother, such a goal is unthinkable for the young woman who could be the next queen.

Then Cath meets Jest, the handsome and mysterious court joker. For the first time, she feels the pull of true attraction. At the risk of offending the king and infuriating her parents, she and Jest enter into an intense, secret courtship. Cath is determined to define her own destiny and fall in love on her terms. But in a land thriving with magic, madness, and monsters, fate has other plans.

In her first stand-alone teen novel, the New York Times-bestselling author dazzles us with a prequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 12, 2016 – Before she was the Queen of Hearts in Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, she was Catherine, the spirited daughter of royalty, destined to wed the King of Hearts but determined to set up shop as a baker with her best friend and longtime maid. In this whimsical standalone tale, readers follow Catherine's simultaneous courtships with the jovial king and his court joker, Jest, whose earnest boyishness makes him far more charming than his royal boss. Caught between her own desires and her mother's stop-at-nothing goal to make her daughter queen, Catherine must decide how much she will risk for a future with Jest. Meyer's Wonderland is a fun and more refined version of Carroll's, and readers will enjoy the obvious parallels. Jest and Catherine have a playfully clandestine relationship, but it's a slow build-up to the inevitable clash between what Catherine wants and what reality demands. Meyer's worldbuilding is extensive and impressive, and the persistent threat of a destructive Jabberwock lends tension, but the story lacks the high-stakes danger that fans of the Lunar Chronicles have come to expect. Ages 12 up.

My favorite Book

I love the storyline, the characters and the imagery around the whole story where it makes the story feel real. I really enjoy reading this book, it is really good.


I absolutely love this book. It's one of my favorites!! I've read it over and over again since it first came out! Even so, I can't believe it took me my third read to realize that Hatta was in love with Jest too! I don't know how I missed it my first couple of reads. It just made their stories all the more tragic, for they could not run from fate

Sooo good and sad

I couldn’t stop crying 😭 because my favorite character DIES
I was sad for a week and all my friends were asking me what’s wrong and I answer my favorite character dies In a book that I read and they come to the conclusion that I’m crazy
So if you like adorable ships, swords, and depression then I suggest this book to you!!!

I’m one of those people even though I end up crying my eyeballs out.
