Review of WENDY DARLING by Colleen Oakes

****Coming October 13th, 2015****
Incredible retelling of PETER PAN! Absolutely fell in love with this book. Told from Wendy’s point of view, it gives you a different way of looking at Peter Pan and the Lost Boys. A darker, twisted take on a beloved children’s book. Definitely not the story you grew up hearing! It draws you in and keeps you anxiously turning the pages to find out what happens next! You won’t want to miss this first book of a new series. Definitely recommend! 



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 one night, 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 into Neverland, an intoxicating island of 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.
