BOOKS READ IN 2017: PETER DARLING by Austin Chant
“The very world here bends for the sake of your stories, Pan.
I see no reason why I, a mere man, should not.”
Ten years ago, Peter Pan left Neverland to grow up, leaving behind his adolescent dreams of boyhood and resigning himself to life as Wendy Darling. Growing up, however, has only made him realize how inescapable his identity as a man is.
But when he returns to Neverland, everything has changed: the Lost Boys have become men, and the war games they once played are now real and deadly. Even more shocking is the attraction Peter never knew he could feel for his old rival, Captain Hook—and the realization that he no longer knows which of them is the real villain.
“I’m the spirit of youth and joy, remember?”
“You’re a grown man and a nuisance.”
