Wonderland (Fall Fires) by Jude Ouvrard is about a young man, Lucas, who is living in New York City with his brother. He is interested in writing poetry and attends a poetry class. There he meets Preston, who is caring, loving, and giving. Together they discuss Lucas' bucket list, among other things.

The book is beautiful with some heart-rending moments and emotions. The characters are well portrayed and they are both good human beings. The love story between Lucas and his tutor will make you shed a few tears. Though a novella, these few pages are soul searching and it is an ideal story for a movie. Preston, Lucas, and his brother Julien will win the hearts of readers by the time they put down the book.

The poem at the beginning of each chapter is a beautiful and novel idea. The poems are poignant and full of feeling. It adds to the impact of the emotions portrayed and does full justice to the poetic background of the story. Though short, the poems are expressed in a way that they blend well with the prose. This novella will touch your heart and make you emotional by the time you put down the book. The Last Poem is emotionally charged. The feelings of Lucas, and his hopes and dreams, speak through the poem and is a fitting finale to the closing chapter.
