“Any last words?”
“Go to hell, you freaking...filthy...godforsaken…”
Our noses almost touch as he dips his head and brushes a strand of my hair behind my ear. “Angel, the word you’re looking for is pirate.”

Strange things are happening in Neverland…

Although Angelina McFarland loves reading fairytales, she never dreamed of falling right into one herself. Literally! But who is this flying boy who saved her? And why doesn’t he want to grow up?

Desperately trying to find a way off this cursed island, Angelina runs into a ruthless pirate. Hook captures her and keeps her trapped on his ship, the Jolly Roger, to lure the flying boy out of his hiding.

But is Hook really the heartless man she heard about? The more time Angel spends with him, the more she starts to wonder. Her growing feelings for him are as intense as shocking, and soon she can’t stop thinking about how soft his lips felt on hers when he kissed her under the stars.

As time passes, an old train ticket to London is all she has left to remind her of her former life and why she can’t give up trying to find a way home.

Or is staying in Neverland forever the better choice after all?

Grab a happy thought and follow Angel on an adventure that will keep you breathless and smiling long after you read the last page…

This is another book that I've been meaning to read for so long now. And, it's another one that I wish I'd taken the time to read sooner.

I've been busy reading retellings lately. All I can say is that maybe it's because they bring about waves of nostalgia. Memories from my childhood of beloved stories that I couldn't get enough of.

So far, all of them have been wonderful--Neverland, included!

If you're expecting to meet a middle-aged Captain Hook who gets off on harassing young children--this is not Barrie's Neverland. Not really. In some ways, we still get the pleasures of the former. Fairies, mermaids, damsels-in-distress... It's all there.

But, oh so much sweeter, is the budding romance that Katmore's novel includes. And familiar characters that are more dimensional than that of old.

Don't take this book too seriously, however. Because, it may have added elements that make a girl swoon, but remember that it's a young adult romance through-and-through.

Whimiscal, romantic, swoony, and dramatic. Give Neverland a chance if you enjoy a sweet fairy tale with familiar faces.

Want to check out the first few chapters for free? Head on over to Anna Katmore's webpage, here.

You can win your choice of "Neverland" or "Pan's Revenge", the sequel. Just fill out the Rafflecopter, below...

  1. Some of Gregory Maguire's retellings are pretty good. Ella Enchanted is well done also.

  2. I just recently read Wicked and I really enjoyed it. Thank you!

  3. It's not a book, but Ever After was a great retelling of the cinderella story.
