Wynn Harper spends her days trying to blend into the background. This isn't very easy, especially being the great granddaughter of the late Wendy Darling. Wynn used to love Great Gran's stories about her adventures in Neverland with Peter Pan and his lost boys, but that's all they were. Just stories, right? That's what Wynn keeps telling herself.

But then she meets Peter, the beautiful boy with a voice to match, and when he whisks her off to Neverland, Wynn knows this is no fairy tale. The lost boys are a group of rebellious ex-pirates, young Hook has a soft side, and Peter Pan isn't as innocent as you might think.

Zombie sighting:
The day dragged on at an irritatingly slow pace as I tried and failed to avoid Annabel and her cheerleader zombies.
-chapter 2

My two-bits:

Nice romp in Neverland with Peter Pan and Wendy's great granddaughter, Wynn.

Interesting reveal (to me) is made in regards to the relationship between Captain Hook and Wendy.

Romance is in the forefront in this tale with Peter Pan.

  1. I love that cover, but knowing it's a Peter Pan re-telling of sorts pulls me deep in! Great review!

  2. oh, intriguing! I read one Peter Pan retelling and loved it. I'll have to check this one out.
