Wendy Darling has a perfectly agreeable life with her parents and brothers in wealthy London, as well as a budding romance with Booth, the neighborhood bookseller’s son. But while their parents are at a ball, the charmingly beautiful Peter Pan comes to the Darling children’s nursery and—dazzled by this flying boy with god-like powers—they follow him out of the window and straight on to morning, to Neverland, a intoxicating island of feral freedom.

As time passes in Neverland, Wendy realizes that this Lost Boy’s paradise of turquoise seas, mermaids, and pirates holds terrible secrets rooted in blood and greed. As Peter’s grasp on her heart tightens, she struggles to remember where she came from—and begins to suspect that this island of dreams, and the boy who desires her—have the potential to transform into an everlasting nightmare.

Why I’m waiting:

Lets dismiss how beautiful this cover is and how alluring the description is. Other than those rather superficial reasons, I need myself a copy of this book because one of my all-time favourite genres is retellings. I know its been a bit of a hyped genre lately so that sounds rather cliched, but I really do love retellings! Some people find them a little dull since they are they are story they already know simply rehashed, but there are so much more.

Also Peter Pan retellings are always fabulous – well, the two or so that I’ve read  have been. Tiger Lily, which I read ZONKS ago blew me away with its gorgeous writing and heart-wrenching story; and more recently Never, Never drew me back into the Peter Pan world and reminded we of how much I love it.

So yes, this book needs to be in my possess like yesterday. 

Question of the Day: Apart from the usual Wednesday question of: what are you waiting for this week? Let me know if you’ve read this book because I NEED to know if it is any good. I am dying to read it!
