It’s been four months since seventeen-year-old Livy Cloud lost her younger sister, but she isn’t quite ready to move on with her life — not even close. She’d rather spend her time at the Seattle Children’s hospital, reading to the patients and holding onto memories of the sister who was everything to her and more.

But when she meets the mysterious and illusive Meyer she is drawn into a world of adventure, a world where questions abound.

Is she ready to live life without her sister? Or more importantly, is she brave enough to love again?

In this modern reimagining of Peter Pan, will Livy lose herself to Neverland or will she find what she’s been searching for?

I was never a huge fan of fairy tales growing up.  However, as I’ve come across retellings of the tales that still continue to live in our world even today, through books, movies and even live plays. I couldn’t help but be interested in this retelling of Peter Pan.  Yes, I’ve read the book.  Watched the movie and even the live televised platform as well.  But it’s this simple read, packed with realistic characters, real life issues and concerns, woven together in a world of Neverland, that kept me reading for more.

The main character Olivia, has lost her sister to cancer.  A disease that many of us have either known someone close to us or distant that has been faced with this medical illness.  That in itself is a tug at the reader’s emotions, creating that effect wich pulls us in deeper and deeper.  Livy, meets her Peter Pan, Meyer.  A more modern version, with enough fantasy twisted in, to continue the retelling, however staying true to specific details and connections of the two stories.

Ms. Arnold has taken a classic.  Combined old and new characters a like, together to form a new story, with the healing of the heart, the will to move on, along with the support of a very special friend, who just may even have the power to fly.  It’s one read not to miss.

    Your book looks and sounds amazing! I’ve read the classic book by J.M Barrie and only one retelling, which was Second Star by Alyssa B. Sheinmel. I love the Peter Pan story, so it was really enjoyable!
    Thank you so much for the wonderful giveaway!

    My biggest memory of Peter Pan is in a Disney book I had growing up. It contained many Disney stories and the pictures for Peter Pan were amazing & kind of scary. :)

    I have avoided retellings as the original story was so engaging, but I first found it because of the Disney movie. But I have added your book to my must find to read list on goodreads because reading synopsis here and reviews on goodreads I am so intrigued!

    The only retelling I can think of is the tv show Once Upon a Time, and they dragged the story line out way too long. This book sounds like a really cool read! I’ll definitely have to check it out :)

    Believe it or not, I have actually never read a retelling of Peter Pan! I loved the Peter Pan twist on Once Upon A Time, though! Brilliant!

    my favorite telling of Peter Pan is the classic live action with Mary Martin. I just have so many fond memories of watching that growing up. For re-telling, it would have to be Hook. Again, lots of childhood memories associated with that.
