About the Author

Victoria L. James is a teenage girl stuck in a thirty-something-year-old's body. Living somewhere 'oop north' in England, she has had a strong passion for words and stories going as far back as she can remember, which she credits to her grandmother and her love of reading anything that was on sale and cheap from the local market stall. Never once did she think she would release a novel, though. At best, she thought her love of language and her ability to create stories in her mind would provide her with a 'get out of jail free' card whenever she messed up and her parents were mad at her during her teenage years... and when even that didn't work out, she thought she was pretty much done for. 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?

What can I say about this book? It was deep, like not just parts of it, the whole bloody thing! Every chapter touched on a new emotional issue and how Izzy dealt with it, but it went into her mind in a detailed way and I appreciated that. It had some serious soul searching in it. A lot of heartache and a small dose of romance. Too small if you ask me. It seems to be a voyage and return plot book, and while I like those fine, I find that they are not exactly my cup of tea. I have no closure in these kinds of books as they are often left open-ended. And I hate that.

A great quality of this book is the psycological-ness of it. I get Izzy, I understood her feelings of heartache and abandonment. Her insecurity and her hopefulness, her feirce protectiveness of the ones she loves were described exquisitely. Her life was a rollercoaster of emotions that I will gladly ride again.

Favorite Quotes:

We are soul sisters, connected by heart if not by blood. I love her more that anyone else in the world.

Best friends don’t just ride through the good times side by side. They fall when the other falls, too. If she is going to get herself arrested, well then I’ll be right beside her, laughing the whole way through while Lori sits on the sidelines, shaking her head at us, no doubt laughing even harder.

Time takes away all those memories you try to cling onto, because new ones push past, bigger and brighter than the last and worm their way into their place. Time makes you forget. Time makes you question. Time isn’t a healer. It’s a destroyer.

Rumour has is that we, as a collective, should never say never. They say (whoever they are), to place that kind of restriction upon our lives will only limit our experience and cloud our judgement in the future.

Izzy Moffit’s Road to Wonderland

Victoria writes beautifully, I’m not ashamed to say I cried, I laughed, I gasped, everything that Izzy (and Paris) felt, I felt it along with them. It’s actually incredibly hard to edit a book you enjoy so much, I constantly had to go over it as I realised I was ‘reading’ instead of ‘editing’ and I’m looking forward to reading it purely for pleasure.

We meet Izzy and Paris in the Prologue, aged 10, immediately you can feel their bond, but also Izzy’s struggle. Her life is clearly poles apart from her best friend’s but even aged 10 they are funny, you actually can visualise this conversation between two 10 yr olds….

**“I’m her anchor.”
“Her wanker?”
Unable to stop myself from looking up, still struggling against the pain that’s floating around in the back of my head and making my eyes fill with water, I turn to her and frown. “You just swore.”
“You did it first,” she replies, holding back a giggle.
“No, no I didn’t. I said anchor… anchor!”
“Like one of those things on a boat?” Her little button nose turns up at the end, something she only ever does when she’s confused. **

As Izzy grows up and her life at home becomes unbearable, she's forced to run to the only other place she's ever called home. She runs to her best friend, Paris, and the Hemsworth family for help.

Aged 17 she picks herself up with their support and feels like her life can only be on the up, because it could hardly get worse, right? Hmmmm life has a way of letting you think that, then kicking you right were it hurts with a sucker punch!

I almost never write reviews. It's not because I don't think the author deserves to know how I feel about their work...but because most books, while fantastically written, don't stay in my head - or heart - for that long after reading them.

This book is an exception...

Isabella Moffit has had a rough life. She has seen things no child should have to see, and experienced things she shouldn't have had to experience. The one bright spot in her life - her best friend, Paris Hemsworth. In fact, the whole Hemsworth family becomes her lifeline...until it all changes. Everything and everyone she's ever known is suddenly gone, and Moffy must learn how to survive being alone. She turns to writing, and discovers a passion she didn't know she possessed, and quietly lives her life, her best friend Paris never far from her thoughts. Several years go by, and Paris returns - a different person and with a major problem. Moffy and Paris must once again pick up the pieces of their lives and forge a new path. But where will their journey take them this time? All the way to Wonderland.

I've been a fan of #Wonderland on Twitter for well over a year now, and have come to love and genuinely care for the characters featured in this book. To say I eagerly await the arrival of their stories is an understatement. I promise, like I've never promised before, that this is a book you MUST read, and you will love it. The writing is fantastic, the words almost seem to create a picture that practically floats above the pages. I loved this book, and as I told the author recently - it has left a Wonderland-shaped hole in my heart. I love ya, Moff...and am so proud of you!
