The Wonderland Effect by Robert Arrington


The Wonderland Effect is YA superheroes fiction (minus the spandex). The protagonist is Alice Littleton, a 16-year-old girl who developed her powers after an accidental poisoning when she was eight. The story develops as she discovers there are others with powers out there, and some have extremely unsavory motives. The first part of the book interweaves happenings at the Prometheus Academy, a newly opened school for truly empowered students.

Note: The Wonderland Effect contains some graphic violence and harsh language.
