Never Never 

Authors: Brianna R. Shrum
Publisher: Spencer Hill
Release Date: September 22, 2015

Link to Goodreads:

James Hook is a child who only wants to grow up.

When he meets Peter Pan, a boy who loves to pretend and is intent on never becoming a man, James decides he could try being a child—at least briefly. James joins Peter Pan on a holiday to Neverland, a place of adventure created by children’s dreams, but Neverland is not for the faint of heart. Soon James finds himself longing for home, determined that he is destined to be a man. But Peter refuses to take him back, leaving James trapped in a world just beyond the one he loves. A world where children are to never grow up.

But grow up he does. 

And thus begins the epic adventure of a Lost Boy and a Pirate.

This story isn’t about Peter Pan; it’s about the boy whose life he stole. It’s about a man in a world that hates men. It’s about the feared Captain James Hook and his passionate quest to kill the Pan, an impossible feat in a magical land where everyone loves Peter Pan.

Except one.

Why I'm Excited:

You know what this world needs? Another Peter Pan re-telling. Lol. I'm getting a bit wary of re-tellings and re-imagining, I'll be honest, but that cover! Yes, I'm shallow, but it's so pretty. This actually sounds pretty good, so I'm hoping it will be amazing.

What are you waiting for on this Wednesday? Link me up!

  3. I absolutely love Peter Pan, so I definitely want to check the out. A lot of the retellings I have read recently are so disappointing though…hopefully this one since it focuses on Hook will be original and compelling. Great pick, Natalie!

  8. Hmmm…not sure about this one, to be honest. Retellings are definitely hit or miss with me. I'll have to wait and read reviews…hope this one ends up being good! ~Pam

Hello, there! Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read each and every one and will do my best to respond--usually on your blog instead of on mine. I will, however, always answer direct questions. Due to serious time restraints, this blog is now an award free zone, but I appreciate the thought!
