Steven Sater penned the book, based on the show he co-wrote with Spring Awakening collaborator Duncan Sheik and Jessie Nelson.
Penguin Random House YA imprint Razorbill will publish a young adult novel adaptation of Alice By Heart, which premiered Off-Broadway earlier this year, in 2020. The book, written by Steven Sater, will be released February 4.
Both the book and the musical take place in 1940s London as a 15-year-old Alice Spencer and her best friend navigate their war-torn home, using the classic book as a refuge. Those encountered along their journey (nurses, soldiers, and more) begin to take on the form of familiar characters, including the Queen of Hearts and Mad Hatter.
