Lost Boy by Christina Henry

My Rating: 5/5 stars

Short Summary: A retelling of how Peter’s favorite and first lost boy became his enemy, Hook. 

My Review: I read this book in a day. I couldn’t put it down. The pacing and excitement of Neverland mischief and battles doesn’t slow down. 

Getting into Jamie’s head, seeing his compassion for the boys Peter doesn’t care about, and feeling his anger over Peter’s betrayal was emotionally provoking. I was cheering on Jamie the whole time, routing for Peter to fail. 

The story is dark, like Barrie’s original Peter Pan, since it leads up to Pan and Hook’s rivalry. If you didn’t like Peter’s character in the original, you probably won’t like him in this book. Though, I have to say, I enjoyed this story ten times more than I did the original. If you’re like me, and Hook is your favorite character of the two and you like the dark twist of Peter Pan, then this is the perfect book for you! 

Overall, this is one of my new favorites I’m adding to my bookshelf. I bought the paperback from Amazon for my own enjoyment.
