The 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.SEE VIDEO BY TOPIC: Brandy You're a Fine Girl by Looking Glass w/ lyrics

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.
I have read all of her books but I think that this is my favourite as it is based on situations that help you to understand that this could happen if you are not careful in life.
I think this is an important message as people can often do some really silly things if they don't think carefully. This book also shows that friendship is important and that a small situation can really bring out a good and kind side to people.
Overall, I would say that this story is a great read and one that you can read more than one time in a row without it getting boring. This is because you can always notice something new every time you read it. I would rate this book a five star as it is a great book to read and you will have learnt something by the end.
This is important for an author to include because you don't want to get bored and not want to read it again. I would recommend this book to people that are looking for a drama book that makes you move to the edge of your seat and want to learn more. Don't think that you shouldn't read this book if you don't want to learn anything new as you may not spot all the advice woven between the words like thread.

Looking Glass Girl by Cathy Cassidy – review
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.
Looking Glass Girl
Alice nearly didn't go to the sleepover. Why would Savvy, queen of the school, invite someone like her? Lost in a wonderland of dreams and half-formed memories, she's surrounded by voices - the doctor, her worried friends and Luke - whose kisses the night of the fall took her by surprise. A wonderful modern-day reimagining of Lewis Carroll's timeless classic, an unforgettable tale of friendship and love from one of the UK's best-loved authors. When we meet Alice there has been a call and an ambulance is on it's way.
To celebrate the th anniversary of Alice in Wonderland , a compelling modern-day re-imagining of Alice's story by every girl's favourite author, Cathy Cassidy.
