My rating: 3 stars
Series: Never Ever
On Wylie's seventeenth birthday, she and her brothers sneak out for one last night together and to escape their parents. When Wylie meets a mysterious stranger, she allows them to be swept away to an island where no one ages. But things aren't exactly as they seem and the island has a secret no one will tell.
This was one of those books that I came to the end of and was a little disappointed to discover it was the first of a series. However, I may actually read the second book--the sneak peak at the back seemed promising.
This is a reimagining of Peter Pan, but with darker undertones. These aren't just wild lost boys fighting crazy pirates--this is about children with lost childhoods, with fears that are invisible, and a secret on the island that forces the kids to behave a certain way. Unlike Neverland, this isn't a colorful place with mermaids and fairies.
There is mention of sex off the page and some mild language.
