As a fan of anything Peter Pan I can highly recommend Unhooked by Lisa Maxwell. Unhooked is about Gwendolyn Allister, who has just moved with her eccentric mother to London. Gwen has been moving from place to place with her mother her entire life, running from the “monsters” that her mother insists are following them.

Gwen ha21518344.jpgs always chalked up her mother’s crazy rantings about monsters to her being an artist. But when they move to an odd house with paintings of fairies on the outskirts of London, Gwen can tell that something about the place is not right.

But when Gwen is kidnapped by shadowy creatures and taken to a world of flesh-eating sea hags and dangerous Fey, Gwen realizes her mom might have been sane all along.

The world Gwen finds herself in is called Neverland, yet it’s nothing like the stories. Here, good and evil lose their meaning and memories slip like water through her fingers. As Gwen struggles to remember where she came from and find a way home, she must choose between trusting the charming fairy-tale hero who says all the right things and the roguish young pirate who promises to keep her safe.

This story is exciting and scary all the same time – a fun read!
