“What if it’s impossible for us to go home because we don’t belong there anymore? For that matter, what if we were never real people to begin with and we’re really just fictional characters who think they’re real people?”
After being mysteriously transported to a magical dimension inhabited by characters from fictional stories, three teenagers are pulled into a conflict between Good Ideas from classic tales and Bad Ideas, which have proliferated with the rise of online publishing.
Over the course of their adventure, they encounter Alice and the White Rabbit from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Snow White’s formerly evil stepmother, the witch from Hansel and Gretel, Lady Macbeth, Elizabeth Bennett from Pride and Prejudice, Santa Claus, and others.
In an exploration of the nature of stories, characters, and the responsibilities of creators to their creations, the trio begins to wonder… could they be characters in a story themselves?
