Waiting on Wednesday

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine

What if Wendy first traveled to Neverland… with Captain Hook?

Sixteen-year-old Wendy Darling's life is not what she imagined it would be. The doldrums of an empty house after her brothers have gone to school, the dull parties where everyone thinks she talks too much, and the fact that her parents have decided to send her away to Ireland as a governess-it all makes her wish things could be different.

Wendy's only real escape is in writing down tales of Never Land. After nearly meeting her hero, Peter Pan, four years earlier, she still holds on to the childhood hope that his magical home truly exists. She also holds on to his shadow.

So when an opportunity to travel to Never Land via pirate ship presents itself, Wendy makes a deal with the devil. But Never Land isn't quite the place she imagined it would be. Unexpected dangers and strange foes pop up at every turn, and a little pixie named Tinker Bell seems less than willing to help.

But when Captain Hook reveals some rather permanent and evil plans for Never Land, it's up to the two of them to save Peter Pan-and his world.

Oh I am so excited for this one! Peter Pan is one of my favorite Disney movies, so I'd love to see what twist this tale will take!

  2. It's always interesting to see how they will spin Peter Pan for a retelling. Hope it's fantastic!

  3. I need this! This is the first I've heard of Straight On Till Morning, but it sounds like something I would like. Peter Pan and Tinker Bell!!! I hope you love it when you read it. Happy Reading!

  4. Not a huge fan of the whole Peter Pan thing although I do love me a good Hook retelling. Hope you love this though.

  5. I am loving the sounds of this! Thanks for sharing it.
