Forever Neverland by Heather Killough-Walden description:
It has been five years since Wendy Darling and her brothers returned home after a harrowing ordeal in which they’d “gone missing” for several days and nights. To Wendy, they returned by fairy magic, fresh from the fight with Captain Hook, a little mussed up but none the worse for wear.
But to the rest of the world, Wendy and her brothers were abducted and put through such a traumatic experience, Wendy has subconsciously taken to hiding the truth from her brothers and herself by making up stories. Fairy stories – about a boy named Peter Pan and a world called Neverland.
Life is anything but a fairy story for them now. Wendy is being subjected to unwanted psychiatric therapy, her brothers are bullied at school, and the family is falling apart.
Then, one mist-filled night, a billowing black flag parts the clouds in the sky like the fin of a shark. It bears the stark white symbol of a skull and crossbones upon it.
Wendy has been forced to leave Neverland behind. But it is far from finished with her. In the blink of an eye, her world is once more turned upside down by a pixie in human form, a one-handed captain far more handsome and intriguing than she remembered him to be – and by a little boy… who grew up after all
I wasn’t really sure how to rate this book… to be honest most of the way through I was thinking it a 3 stars at best… it’s like an adult book(not the naughty kind) told as a children’s book… and even though I kept wanting to read it, it wasn’t exactly the kind of book that takes a hold of you and you can’t let go… but it had a 5 star ending… such a twist… it was an incredible ending that was just perfect and gave a lot of insight into the old story in a way you probably would’ve never really thought of on your own… so I figured in the end it had to be at least 4 stars… it was definitely a good book and the idea of it is rather plausible… I mean if kids really did disappear like that who would believe they’d been to Neverland… so even in it’s own fantastical way it was believable and gave all the characters new depth and personalities that did help bring this world to life… I would say anyone that likes the tale of Peter Pan would like this book… and for everyone else it’s worth a try…
