Waiting on Wednesday #58: Never Never by Brianna R. Shrum

Happy Wednesday, fellow book lovers! This week's "can't wait to read" is:

Never Never
by Brianna R. Shrum
Publication Date: September 22, 2015
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.

There are two things here that are very important:

  1. Captain Hook
  2. Retelling
I believe that's all that needs to be said, really. 

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine.
