The White Rabbit is a fictional character in Lewis Carroll’s book Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. He appears at the very beginning of the book, in chapter one, wearing a waistcoat, and muttering “Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be too late!” Alice follows him down the rabbit hole into Wonderland.

My white rabbit is just as timid and time obsessed but a teenage girl. Always rushing, always afraid and always late. Caught in the twilight world between childhood and adulthood.
