I'm in the process of choosing a book for my Int 2 personal study and I thought maybe Alice's Adventures in Wonderland would be good, focusing on some of the underlying themes. Do you think it would be suitable for this level, and if so, do you have any question suggestions?

If you enjoy the book then yes.
Sorry, i've never read the book but as long at it is written for adults and has lots of themes to discuss then I;m sure it'll be a great book to do you PSL on.
Check with your teacher if you're in doubt.

My best friend was desperate to do this for her Higher Personal Study but our teacher was adamant that it was a children's book, despite the fact that someone she knew was studying it at uni. She wanted to discuss all the underlying themes too, probably many of the same ones you want to.
Check with your teacher first and put forward a very convincing argument, or choose another book you like that you know will be suitable, like 'Jane Eyre' or something. I did 'The Picture of Dorian Gray' by Oscar Wilde which is fantastic, if you're stuck for anything else.
