Book #24 - Finding Alice by Melody Carlson

This was a really cute inspirational fiction book, recommended to me by irradescent. It's the first of Carlson's books that I've read, but I'll very likely read more in the future. I was tempted to say the book was incredible when I was about halfway through, but unfortunately, the end seemed to drag a bit. After much of the conflict was resolved, the book was just a little too predictable/cliche for me. However, I really liked the original storyline. It's about a college-age girl who begins suffering from schizophrenia/paranoia, and the horrible things that she faces as a result. It loosely paradies Alice in Wonderland which was a unique and clever touch. I'd give it four out of five stars. And I think grrl_next_door would like it.

hehe, it does sound like I'd like it. I think I read a book by her a long time ago - diary of a teenage girl?

Yeah, I'm pretty sure that book is also on my 'list' of Carlson books to check out, do you remember whether you liked it or not?
