I promised my preteen self I would always read Cathy Cassidy's books, as she was probably my first favourite author.

I was desperate to unravel the mystery, without unravelling Alice's mind. Classic Cathy Cassidy, never fails to write an amazing story! View 1 comment. Jun 16, Alice-Elizabeth marriedtobooks rated it liked it Shelves: the-friday-five-reading-challenge-c. This is a modern day reimagine of Alice In Wonderland and quick fun fact, my mum called me Alice after her favourite childhood book Alice In Wonderland!

The Alice in this story goes to a themed sleepover and experiences an accident. In hospital, she is in a coma and while she can hear the conversations of her family, friends and doctors, she can't physically reach out and touch them.

Through this coma, she ends up in the world of Wonderland to which she isn't sure about 3. Through this coma, she ends up in the world of Wonderland to which she isn't sure about finding an escape. It's a cute story, great for younger readers between years of age but I wanted to see more of the Wonderland world rather than just mini scenes. I had no problems with the plot or the pacing.

I decided to read the book 'Looking-Glass Girl' because it sounded like a book that I myself could connect to. Also the front cover was very appealing and had drawn my attention into it.

A character that I was very interested in, in the book, was Alice The main character. Alice started off as a young, confident girl with lots of friends that she spent all of her spare time with. But as she got older, things changed and her friends started to become jealous of her, stating that their friendship I decided to read the book 'Looking-Glass Girl' because it sounded like a book that I myself could connect to.

But as she got older, things changed and her friends started to become jealous of her, stating that their friendship with Alice had simply 'Drifted apart'. As the book goes on, Alice finds herself falling into the reality of life and finding out that not everything in life is how she wants it to be.

When Alice and her friends go into high school, the bullying got worse for Alice. The was one girl in particular who was the centre of attention at the school, this girl was the fierce 'Savvy Hunter' Savvy was like the queen of the school, ordering her friends around and making them do the dirty work towards Alice. The type of things that happened to Alice were things like: people smashing some eggs in her bag, putting raw fish inside her school books and other nasty tactics to get at Alice.

One of my favourite parts of the story was when Alice became popular and everyone felt bad for treating her horribly but Alice was still kind and inviting to all of the people that were horrible to her, giving them a second chance. A favourite quote of mine from the book was 'everyone stopped blaming everyone else; we let go of the past and moved on, and in a funny way the crisis seemed to have bought us together. Something that I thought about deeply throughout the book was the fact that some of the things that the author wrote about were all things that I felt in a Sy that I could connect to.

Even though Cathy Cassidy who wrote the book is older than her intended audience, I felt that she did a great job trying to intrigue the readers by writing about things that they might know about. Looking Glass Girl is a junior fiction novel aimed at girls aged years. Are you a fan of Alice in Wonderland and don't mind touching on edgy subjects, then this is the book for you. Once upon a time there were three best friends Elaine, Yasmin and Alice - right until the summer before they left for junior high , they were the best of friends - the three muskateers.

That was until Alice decided to give Drama a go and managed to land the lead role in the school play Alice in Wonderland in Looking Glass Girl is a junior fiction novel aimed at girls aged years. That was until Alice decided to give Drama a go and managed to land the lead role in the school play Alice in Wonderland in which she starred against the hottest guy in the school Luke whom Elaine had a crush on.

After the play though, things for Alice went down the rabbit hole as her friends started excluding her and soon was the new year at a new school and Alice had been dumped by her friends who had also dropped and changed their names up a bit to Lainey and Yaz. Lainey and Yaz became good friends with Savannah - whom was a bully and also the Queen Bee of Popularity.

Alice chucked herself into drama and soon caught the attention of Savannah - this lead to a sleepover at Savannah's house and then disaster struck and Alice found herself tumbling once again down the rabbit''s hole. Looking Glass Girl is told in three parts - the before which is the lead up to events that happened , the present which is currently happening and the future after the accident.

This is where the Alice in Wonderland part comes through as due to the accident Alice is in a coma and she is playing out the part of Alice in Wonderland in her mind. One of the more edgier parts is what happened after the accident and how they all ended where they were and the author does show just how jealousy can be a powerful and negative tool and how it can lead to dangerous events occuring and sometimes the events, you can never take back what has happened.

Mar 02, Hayley rated it really liked it. I also found this book really appealing with it's distinctive cover and intriguing blurb. To me the main character Alice was really interesting. The Author did a really good job with her, she made it so that after Alice had her 'accident' her whole story started almost backwards and I liked how Cathy Cassidy also included aspects Looking Glass Girl By Cathy Cassidy I decided to read 'Looking Glass Girl by Cathy Cassidy because it was recommended to me by a friend Rose and she really enjoyed it.

The Author did a really good job with her, she made it so that after Alice had her 'accident' her whole story started almost backwards and I liked how Cathy Cassidy also included aspects from Alice and Wonderland - which fitted the story perfectly.

I couldn't find a quote I liked the best - they all made me wonder and think if I was Alice would my family and friends be their for me just like hers were?

Would mine support me or ignore me or not come near me cause they were scared? I learnt reading this book that no matter what I need to be there and support my friends and family and no matter what you need to support those in need of help.

I also thought deeply about how it is such ashamed when your friends all of a sudden stop wanting to be friends and how someone should have at least one friend or someone to talk to, no matter who it is or what they have done.

Hayley O'Brien Good morning :-! I'm starting my day with this. And I'm very impressed :-! It is a young adult book. Which is just what I am ;- so that works perfectly.

I'm reading it because my niece is, so we can chat about it. But I keep forgetting that as it pulls me in It is a book about what it is like to be a young adult. How friends you love and trust turn their backs on you and how the only way to find your way back to true friendship is to find, not them, but you.

A book about: Losing Good morning :-! A book about: Losing friends, loneliness, bullies, wanting to fit in, jealousy, guilt, love Self love. A book that really mirrors what it is like to be this age and will offer comfort and 'advice'. I love it! If you know some age 10 - 16 or 44 this is a perfect gift.

Looking Glass Girl

She was asked to write the book to commemorate the th anniversary of the book. In this version, Alice has been knocked unconscious after she falls down the stairs at a sleepover. The book is quite hard to understand when you first start to read but you eventually understand it as you read further into the book; it makes the story more interesting and fun to read. This is because it cuts from Alice in hospital, to the sleepover and then to Wonderland. The words used are not difficult or complex. The characters are all very different from each other which makes the story more interesting. Most of the chapters end in cliffhangers which make you want to read on. Cathy's books are mostly based on situations like this and for the 10 years she has been writing books, this one doesn't disappoint.

Looking-Glass Girl

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. Retelling Elements What I loved about this retelling was its ability to stand as a novel on its own, without the intertextual elements. It goes without saying, I really loved the small Wonderland parts, when Alice was asleep, and I loved how they disjointedly linked to what people were doing and saying in the real world, but overall, it was a very diluted retelling.

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.

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?

 - Это имя она произнесла с нарочитым пуэрто-риканским акцентом. - Кого? - спросил он чуть осипшим голосом. - Кармен.

Выйдя на открытое место и бросив взгляд на корчащегося на земле Танкадо, он задвигал пальцами, словно исполнял ими какой-то причудливый танец над коробочкой, которую держал в руке. - Он работает на Монокле, - пояснил Смит.  - Посылает сообщение о том, что Танкадо ликвидирован. Сьюзан повернулась к Беккеру и усмехнулась: - Похоже, у этого Халохота дурная привычка сообщать об убийстве, когда жертва еще дышит. Камера последовала за Халохотом, двинувшимся в направлении жертвы.

Я из тех, кто добивается своей цели. Стратмор наклонился и, зачерпнув воды, смыл со своих рук частицы плоти Чатрукьяна. Его мечта о Цифровой крепости рухнула, и он полностью отдавал себе в этом отчет. Теперь у него осталась только Сьюзан. Впервые за много лет он вынужден был признать, что жизнь - это не только служение своей стране и профессиональная честь. Я отдал лучшие годы жизни своей стране и исполнению своего долга. А как же любовь. Он слишком долго обделял .

'I stand in front of the looking-glass in my bedroom, checking my reflection: the girl in the mirror is ' The 'girl in the mirror' device may be the oldest cliché in the.

 Тогда вы наверняка ее видели. Это совсем молоденькая девушка. Лет пятнадцати-шестнадцати.

Правда, оставалась еще одна проблема - Дэвид до сих пор не нашел второй экземпляр ключа. Она молилась, чтобы его усилия увенчались успехом. Направляясь к центру Третьего узла, Сьюзан пыталась привести свои мысли в порядок.

Dov Переведя взгляд на рабочий кабинет Стратмора, она поняла, что больше не может ждать, пусть даже помешает его разговору по телефону. Она встала и направилась к двери. Хейл внезапно почувствовал беспокойство - скорее всего из-за необычного поведения Сьюзан.

Я отказался взять кольцо, а эта фашистская свинья его схватила.

Глаза Сьюзан расширились. - Как прикажете это понимать. На лице Стратмора тут же появилось виноватое выражение. Он улыбнулся, стараясь ее успокоить.

Разве так могут назвать католичку. Должно быть, Клушар ослышался. Беккер набрал первый из трех номеров. - Servicio Social de Sevilla, - прозвучал приятный женский голос. Беккер постарался придать своему испанскому тяжелый немецкий акцент: - Hola, hablas Aleman. - Нет, но я говорю по-английски, - последовал ответ. Беккер перешел на ломаный английский: - Спасибо.

 Пойдемте, - позвал Бринкерхофф, помогая Сьюзан вылезти. Она шла следом за ним точно в тумане. Коридор, выложенный кафельными плитками, довольно круто спускался вниз, и Сьюзан держалась за перила, стараясь не отставать. Воздух в помещении становился все прохладнее.
