Praise for Splintered:
“Splintered is dark, twisted, entirely riveting, and a truly romantic tale.” —USA Today
“Brilliant, because it is ambitious, inventive, and often surprising — a contemporary reworking of Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland,’’ with a deep bow toward Tim Burton’s 2010 film version.” —The Boston Globe
“It’s a deft, complex metamorphosis of this children’s fantasy made more enticing by competing romantic interests, a psychedelic setting, and more mad violence than its original.” —Booklist
“Protagonist Alyssa . . . is an original. Howard’s visual imagination is superior. The story’s creepiness is intriguing as horror, and its hypnotic tone and setting, at the intersection of madness and creativity, should sweep readers down the rabbit hole.” —Publishers Weekly
“Creepy, descriptive read with a generous dollop of romance.” —School Library Journal
