Alice Kingsleigh is a young woman at a crossroads. Not knowing what she wants from life, she is being pushed, pulled, strong-armed, and confused into doing what everyone expects of her. A marriage proposal in front of friends and family pushes Alice over the edge and down the rabbit hole into a place she hasn't visited since her father died 10 years before. Only problem is, she's now a very different person, has no memories of Underland, and is somehow still expected to be someone she's not. How can she argue with something that's mapped out in full visual splendor in the prophetic Oraculum? With the help of The Mad Hatter, The White Queen, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, Absolom, The Cheshire Cat, and the Bandersnatch, can Alice unlock the mystery of her past and light a path to her future?
