Why This Must Be Read: Started reading this yesterday night and just couldn't tear myself away. Very in-character, strong Wendy and twisted but troubled Peter. This story goes in-depth on her time in Neverland - the first time, and the second a year after Baelfire has gone. She's been sent away to school but can't refuse Peter when he comes to take her back to the island. I was pleasantly surprised by the back story and motivation and soul-searching the author gave Peter. This story takes you from the safe warm harbor of the Darling's home, to the watery pools of the heart of Neverland, to an underground bomb shelter in London, and to the darkest cave of secrets, death, and magic where even Peter's shadow seems weary. Hook, Tinkerbell, Tootles, John, Michael, Felix, and Nana all make an appearance. Excellently written, eighteen chapters, and a sequel promised!
Here is the official summary:
After a year Wendy hoped that Neverland was behind her but the sound of pan pipes drifting through her dormitory one night change all that.
