Waiting on Wednesday: Never Never

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's "can't-wait-to-read" is:


title: never never
author: brianna r. shrum
book birthday: september 22, 2015

blurb from goodreads: 


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.


OK, I will admit, I am very afraid to read this but I'm obsessed with Peter Pan so I will anyway. For those of you that read Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson, you understand my fear >_<
