Waiting on Wednesday: Never Never by Brianna R. Shrum


This bookish meme tells the blogosphere what we're waiting patiently (and sometimes not so patiently) for! It's hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine!

Never Never

     James Hook is a child who only wants to grow up.
     When he meets Peter Pan, a boy who loves to pretend and is intent on never becoming a man, James decides he could try being a child—at least briefly. James joins Peter Pan on a holiday to Neverland, a place of adventure created by children’s dreams, but Neverland is not for the faint of heart. Soon James finds himself longing for home, determined that he is destined to be a man. But Peter refuses to take him back, leaving James trapped in a world just beyond the one he loves. A world where children are to never grow up.
     But grow up he does. 
     And thus begins the epic adventure of a Lost Boy and a Pirate.
     This story isn’t about Peter Pan; it’s about the boy whose life he stole. It’s about a man in a world that hates men. It’s about the feared Captain James Hook and his passionate quest to kill the Pan, an impossible feat in a magical land where everyone loves Peter Pan.
     Except one.

Why I'm Waiting:  Um it's a Peter Pan retelling. OF COURSE I'M WAITING ON THIS ONE. How could I not be. I've been trying to find a copy of this since everyone who went to BEA got one. Now that it's coming out already I don't know how to contain my excitement. I love that it will be from Hook's POV and I love that it shows the entire story, not just him as the villain. Even Hook deserves some kind of happy. I've already convinced my mom she needs to read it too lol This one is heavily on our radar!
