This is a new beautiful book by Marissa Meyer with her modern twist on the Queen of Hearts, Catherine. “Before she was the Queen of Hearts she was just a girl who wanted to fall in love”.

Luckily, the Court Joker was there to look after her. The Joker and Catherine fell in love at first sight.
The Joker and Catherine love each other but it is a real challenge for them to be together. Her parents, of course, would never allow her to be with the Joker and the King wants her for to be his wife.
Meanwhile, the Jabberwock is on the loose and animals are being killed.
Will the King stop the Jabberwock? Will Catherine marry the King? Will she ever open the bakery? What about the Joker? Will there be a happily ever after? Read to find out!
I would recommend this book to teenagers. It is full of drama, romance and action!
A 10/10 from me!!!
