pretty sure that an elderly couple moved to a different table just so they could get sure that an elderly couple moved to a different table just so they could get from me Great But the book genuinely is that funny And what s so great about the humour is that it is British humour So much of the LGBT YA I read is Changing Face of the Hero published in America and I love those books with all my heart but there s something distinctive about British humour that Americans just don t get so it was so refreshing to find that in Alex in WonderlandSo anyway a random assortment of things I liked about Alex in Wonderland Homophobia there s none of it I get that homophobia exists but it s nice to read an LGBT book where abuse and violence isn t the focus and where characters can live their best gay lives authentically without fear ofersecution yaaaasRepresentation not every character is white hooray and G isn t the only letter in LGBT getting repped in this book As a side note why is it so hard to find LGBT books with multiple ueer characters What is that aboutMystery a huge The Undisputed Greatest Writer of All Time: A Collection of Poetry part of this book centres on the mystery of who is trying to sabotage the Wonderland arcade The Scooby Doo esue mystery was great fun and I genuinely didn tredict the outcome THAT END SCENE WAS PERFECT I can totally just imagine Alex being like Okay gang let s split up and look for clues Ben you re with me I would love to see a seuel for this book I hope you re listening Simon I need to know what happens next and I d love to see it from Ben s StoryBranding: Creating Stand-Out Brands Through The Power of Story perspective Ben is one of my favourite characters and it would be great to see how he handles things and comes to terms with stuff being vague and mysterious because of spoilers and all so a book from his viewpoint would be amazing I d also love to see this book adapted It would make theerfect Netflix series and with so many YA contemporaries getting It's A Wonderfully Sexy Life picked up for television I think Alex would do wonderfully So to summarise this book isretty darn great If you re looking for a good summer read you absolutely need to Lignin Biodegradation pick it up You ll definitely not regret it Though you may become a little bit too emotionally attached to two fictional boys But hey you win some you lose some This was a fun read but nothing really I was very interested in the main characters s lives but other than that it all fell a bit flat to me The supporting characters didn t have a distinctive voice and they kind of all blended together The mystery surrounding the threats that Wonderland was receiving didn t really spark my interest I think it could have been given space but instead it was used as a background tool to drive the story forward and to give it alot not revolving around Alex s Pure Chance personal life The ending was a bit anticlimactic in my opinion I expected something If you re looking for a uick Summer read it might be a good read but other than that to me this book was nothing special Simon James Green s books always seem to arrive in my life exactly when I need them ALEX IN WONDERLAND took me right out of my head and made me forget about the real world for a little while Funny and silly and lovely and awkward I wished this book would never end When the new Simon James Green appears electronically or otherwise oneuts Naipaul and Forster aside and one is richly rewarded. O know the other teen misfits who work there Alex starts to come out of his shell and even starts to develop feelings for co worker Ben who as Alex's bad luck would have it has a girlfriendThen as debtors close.

This new story about 16 year old Alex and his social clumsiness is deftly The Lady and the Lionheart plotted weaving a love story with a bit of a mystery Others can summarise the narrative extensively I focus on the fun of the novelIt is as funny as Green s books about the hapless Noah with moments causing loud belly laughs The mystery about the threat to Wonderland the town s games arcade is interesting enough to keep the attention but not so dramatic that it overshadows the romantic aspects of the story Speaking of romance that scene at the lake Beautiful timelyleasing spot onIf one says that this story suggests a mature yet age appropriate approach from the author it sounds like such an old erson erspective But it is there and it redicts a growing and enriching oeuvre for this young author I hope in time to come he will be able to ortray characters in advanced decades of their lives characters that are as endearing and humorous as his teenagers from this early stage of his career His ability to observe Schilder's Struggle for the Unity of the Church people closely and find the fun in their lives will ensure success in such ventures I will be reading every single last book from Simon James Green senAlex se storie is effens meer kompleks

n gedugte komediant Just an absolute charming young adult story Slow burn sweet romantic fungedugte komediant Just an absolute charming young adult story Slow burn sweet romantic fun funny Very easy reading this author shows SO much skill and talent I have loved everything I have read so far and am super excited for his next romantic airing Such a great voice I hope Simon James Green has a stab at a New Adult romance sometime I d love to read about characters in their twenties This author s voice would be fantastic for it I keep hearing that Alex in Wonderland is one of this year s best summer reads but since I m not really a romance erson I never thought to buy a copy I ended up getting a copy as a gift and decided to give it a chance While at face value it could easily be dismissed as a romance it s also an unforgettable book about friendship and the struggle to find a lace to belong It s always wonderful to find a sense of true belonging somewhere although in such an overconnectedly disconnected world no longer uite so simple and this book really shows that very well with lovable characters and a setting which hearkens back to magical laces that every small town and city have usually ironically overlooked As much an important National Geographic Kids Almanac 2020 plot conflict in this book as the romance is the desperation to keep the Wonderland themeark afloat as it s at risk of being shut down I was surprised not only by how easy the story is to visualize and how easily the characters come to life but also by the endearing dialogue and the wave of nostalgia throughout It s not just a teen drama but also a daring and captivating story of one boy trying to find his lace in the world over arguably the best summer of his life. In on Wonderland and mysterious threatening notes start to appear Alex and his new friends take it on themselves to save their declining employer But like everything in Wonderland nothing is uite what it seems.
