A/N: I know, I know! So many stories, so little time - but, guys, this fanfiction has just been begging to be written. Who am I to argue? And so I present to you a fanfiction for one of my favorite books: "Splintered" by A.G. Howard ~ ~ ~ Atlas Hart, better known as Alise Gardner and the older sister of Alyssa Gardner, has traveled around the world, looking for a cure to the voices of plants and insects she hears constantly. However, she, after eleven years, is called back home, to Pleasance, Texas. When she gets back, though, she finds that the answer to the curse she's carried since she was born is closer than she thinks, and there may be more to the story she knows so well than she once believed.
