Alice was a young girl with an open future. However, due to abuse and circumstances her self-esteem disappeared. Seeking love and acceptance, she fell into the wrong crowd and wound up in jail. This is the story of how Alice became the woman she is today and how she finally tried to find love and acceptance within her own heart.
This is a novel. The author declares that it is based off of Alice from Wonderland and even alludes to this character occasionally in the story. However, from the beginning the author explains in detail how she interviewed real life women in jail and learned their life stories. The author’s goal is to tell their story by creating the fictional Alice. Written like a memoir, Alice recounts her days from the childhood abuse to the crime spree and eventually finding God through the help of therapy. This is a very profound book, focused more on life lessons than a normal flow of a novel.
