Reviewer: Lita Thomas
Stars: 4.5 (☆☆☆☆.5)
Izzy Moffit’s Road to Wonderland was a book which I was not quite sure what genre the book fits into but I can say I really enjoyed this book. The story was well told and I had a hard time putting this book down. This was the story of a girl Isabella Moffit and her life with her best friend, Paris. The story spans from age 10 to about 31 years. The trials and tribulations of growing up and coming of age are told in such a way that I was never bored or felt the story dragged. The story starts with Izzy living with a physically abuse father who not only beats on the mother but her as well. Her only sanctuary is at her best friends Paris’s house with her and her family who try and keep her safe. Izzy endures many situations trying to find her way to Wonderland and the journey was well worth the read. Just be prepared for the ending which I did not see coming but I do look forward to the next installment in Izzy and Paris’s life.
Book Description on Amazon:
When an opportunity presented itself for her to take a back seat from paid working life for a few years, she knew straight away that she had to try and write about a few of these worlds she’d come up with along the way, and quieten all the voices in her head without racking up a heavy psychiatry bill for the pleasure.
Wearing her heart on her sleeve and trying to lighten her friends’ and family’s lives with naff, and more often than not, badly-timed, nineties jokes, she has yet to learn the art of knowing when to shut up. Which is another reason writing became a passion of hers. With pen and paper, there are no limits.
A firm believer in never quitting, with a ridiculous obsession for all things Rocky, she hopes that one day she writes a story that will inspire at least one person out there to keep on going if they’re struggling. Other than that, she’s just a regular old converse wearing, corona sipping, English version of Chandler Bing, who loves and adores her family more than life itself. Oh, and she also has two cats. Every writer has to mention their cats, right?
