Alice Beech, our central character and sometimes narrator, falls down her own nightmare of a rabbit-hole and ends up comatosed in a hospital bed. Fragment by fragment, the events which precipitate her life-shattering tumble down a flight of stairs become clear; slowly she understands what happened one night at a sleepover where calculated bullying almost took her life. This is a tale of jealousy, loneliness and spite. An everyday story, the book seems to say, of growing up female in middle-class suburbia.
They are responsible for planning the almost fatal sleepover. While many readers will recognise persecution as devious and manipulative as this, the unrelieved malice makes for a problem here. Savvy and Co reveal barely a hint of a redeeming feature between them. Even their anxiety for Alice in her coma is driven largely by concern that no one discovers that they were the cause of it.
But why on earth would Alice, the only likeable girl in the novel, want to be in with Savvy? Alice is worth more than that, as is Luke, with whom she has a growing friendship — including a believable sexual element. Dialogue here is often banal and repetitious, and while conversation may in reality often be banal and repetitious, it makes for tedious and undemanding reading.
In practice, though, these reservations will probably mean little. Poldark , anyone? Looking-Glass Girl View Rearrange. Digital version — browse, print or download Can't see the preview? BfK No. PDF Printer-friendly version Send to friend.

Date: 7 October Category: Festival Reviews. My first experience of this event was a bit like that of the character in the book — when I was accidentally locked inside Church House after the review workshop. After discovering a way out down the fire escape, I dashed across to Ilkley Playhouse, through a maze of tea tables, up the stairs and burst into the Wharfeside auditorium to find it buzzing with excitement and anticipation. Cathy Cassidy came out on to the stage and immediately established a rapport with the children in the audience.

But an accident suddenly changes everything and Alice is rushed to hospital. As her friends and family rally round, a mystery begins to unravel. Was Alice pushed, and why? Who would want to hurt her? Get ready to fall down the rabbit hole all over again…. I would reccomend this to anyone but I feel like it relates to early teens the most.
Looking Glass Girl
Alice is a little too Marmite for some tastes, and I totally understand if a certain film or stage adaptation or past edition of the book itself put you off for life. Despite that leap, in some respects Cathy is on solid ground with Looking Glass Girl , tackling some of the staples of her past success — issues like fitting in, bullying and peer pressure, friendship and first-love. But here she gets to do all that in a slightly darker setting, immersing herself into that labyrinth of wrong turns Carroll carved out all those years before. It appears effortless for all the carefully-constructed content, Cathy subtly inter-weaving various characters from the original text into her narrative, suggesting similarities between them and her own creations. For a recent in-depth interview with Cathy Cassidy on this blog, head here. And for more about the author, her past work and forthcoming book events and visits, try her website. I love the cover too by my lovely friend Erin Keen.
Plot and Person The story follows Alice, a girl who fell into a comatose state after tripping down the stairs at a themed sleepover. The story is told in a mixture of 1st and 3rd person. Alice takes the 1st person role, but when she can no longer speak, her friends, peers, parents and love interest take over the story telling.

- Я знаю эту гостиницу. Она совсем. - Вот и прекрасно.
Сколько времени он уже занят поиском. Открылось окно - такие же цифровые часы, как на ТРАНСТЕКСТЕ, которые должны были показывать часы и минуты работы Следопыта.
Убедить абсолютно незнакомого человека отдать вам золотое кольцо скорее всего будет весьма непросто, поэтому Беккер хотел заручиться хотя бы одним преимуществом.
Пока старик собирался с мыслями, Беккер не произнес ни слова. Тот огляделся вокруг, указательным пальцем разгладил усы и наконец заговорил: - Что вам нужно? - Он произносил английские слова немного в нос. - Сэр, - начал Беккер чуть громче, словно обращаясь к глуховатому человеку, - я хотел бы задать вам несколько вопросов.

С каждой минутой, уходящей на эти бесплодные попытки, ее цена растет. - Но это же абсурд, - не согласилась Сьюзан. - Ни один из новых шифрованных файлов нельзя вскрыть без ТРАНСТЕКСТА. Вероятно, Цифровая крепость - это стандартный алгоритм для общего пользования, тем не менее эти компании не смогут его вскрыть. - Это блистательная рекламная операция, - сказал Стратмор.
О… Боже ты. - В чем дело? - спросил Джабба. Все прильнули к экрану и сокрушенно ахнули.
