Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and is a fun way to share upcoming books that you’re excited about with other bloggers and readers.
I was so excited to spot this cover reveal last week on Facebook, and I immediately knew which book I’d be picking for the last Waiting on Wednesday of the year!
From the national bestselling author of Alice comes a familiar story with a dark hook a tale about Peter Pan and the friend who became his nemesis, a nemesis who may not be the blackhearted villain Peter says he is.
There is one version of my story that everyone knows. And then there is the truth. This is how it happened. How I went from being Peter Pan s first and favorite lost boy to his greatest enemy.
Peter brought me to his island because there were no rules and no grownups to make us mind. He brought boys from the Other Place to join in the fun, but Peter’s idea of fun is sharper than a pirate’s sword. Because it s never been all fun and games on the island. Our neighbors are pirates and monsters. Our toys are knife and stick and rock the kinds of playthings that bite.
Peter promised we would all be young and happy forever.
Lost Boy: The True Story of Captain Hook by Christina Henry. Releases in July 2017 from Berkley Books. I’m a big fan of Henry’s The Chronicles of Alice series (although bad on me, I still haven’t read Red Queen:-() But I’m really looking forward to her take on Peter Pan, and I’m loving the simplistic yet powerful cover image.
