Summary:

London, 1940. Amidst the rubble of the Blitz, fifteen-year-old Alice Spencer and her friend, Alfred, are forced to take shelter in an underground tube station. Sick with tuberculosis, Alfred is quarantined, with doctors saying he won't make it through the night. In her desperation to keep him holding on, Alice turns to the book that bonded them: the story of Alice in Wonderland. As her war-ravaged homeland blends into her beloved Wonderland, it is a welcome distraction from the bombs and the death. But one rule always applies: the pages must keep turning.
