The Winner

Planet NeverlandPlanet Neverland
by J.M. Page and Juno Wells

Welcome to Planet Neverland, where all your dreams become reality and responsibilities are a worry of the past.

Wendy Darling has always been the dutiful, doting sister to her twin brothers, John and Michael, but she’s been so wrapped up in protecting them from themselves, that she never realized she wasn’t living her own life.

The boys are tired of being stifled by Wendy’s smothering and long for adventure and excitement. They get more than they bargained for when they meet Peter, a street performer from another planet, on Earth seeking new additions to his show.

Peter’s been in dire straits for a while now, after most of his crew disappeared without a trace. He’s desperate for more performers and happily accepts the twins into his crew — even if it means their bossy sister tags along. She insists.

But Neverland isn’t as worry-free as Peter promised. His wasn’t the only show in town that had people mysteriously vanish and despite his burgeoning romance with Wendy, Peter knows his days are numbered.

When her brothers are the ones in danger and Wendy risks herself to save them, Peter will have to face his demons once and for all, or lose everything.

Have you read a retelling of Peter Pan? What about this book are you most curious about?

  1. Well, I did pick the Lady and the Tramp retelling, but this one was my second choice. It’s funny, but I enjoy the Peter Pan retellings more than I ever enjoyed the original story by JM Barrie- though I like that a little, too.

    I think the Marie Hall book about Hook was the last Peter Pan retelling I read, but I think I have a YA book on my kindle about Tiger Lily and another about Tinker Bell so eventually I’ll read them. πŸ™‚

    • I never really was a big fan of Peter Pan, so I am actually hoping that’s the case here too and I’ll enjoy the retelling more. Funny how that works sometimes!

      I remember seeing a book about Tiger Lily once and a book about Tinker Bell sounds fun!

    • It really does sound good! I hope it’s as good as it sounds. This will be my first Peter Pan retelling as far as I can remember.
