Wonderland by Juno Dawson

Alice lives in a world of unimaginable privilege but she has trouble discerning what is real and what her fertile imagination has invented.

When her troubled friend Bunny goes missing, Alice becomes obsessed with finding her. On the trail of her last movements, Alice discovers a mysterious invitation to 'Wonderland', billed as the party to end all parties: it's three days of hedonistic excess to which only the elite are welcome. And it may uncover what's happened to Bunny. Juno Dawson, one of the most popular young adult writers at work today, offers a modern day reworking of Lewis Carroll's classic Alice's Adventures in Wonderland as she explores mental health, gender and privilege.
