Avi Roque is such a good narrator! I really enjoyed this.

I am not a fan of the original Peter Pan, but I like some of the ideas in that story. I am glad that Aiden Thomas ignored the aspects I hate about it and kept the ones I like.

Five years before the start of the novel, Wendy Darling’s two brothers went missing. Now, more children have started to disappear and bringing back memories of the two missing boys from all those years ago. Wendy encounters a boy that claims to be Peter Pan and that has an idea of what they must do to find the kids. However, this means that Wendy will have to go back into the woods she tried to avoid in years.

I am not the biggest fan of urban fantasy either, but I like fairy tale inspired stories and something like Peter Pan is close enough. I also like mysterious, magical and dark stories and this one fits too. This book has a mystery, but the focus is on Wendy and her mental health as well as her relationship with her parents and Peter.

The story moves slowly even though there is urgency when it comes to Peter finding those kids and going back to Neverland. At times it seems the characters get distracted from their mission and I wonder if it is because of the child-like nature of Peter Pan and if being with him brings up the same in Wendy too.

Sometimes I felt that the messages were too explicit on the page and I prefer it to be more subtle and not spelled out. However, this seems to be very common in YA and it’s not particularly an issue with this book.

I liked the cute relationship between Peter and Wendy and how Wendy’s struggles were dealt with. I also liked the resolution to the mystery and the explanation of Peter Pan’s work.

What I liked the most was the ending. I like the kind of endings that leave space for the imagination. My main issue with Cemetery Boys was that the ending felt too easy and convenient. This one didn’t make me feel the same way and because of that I like it better. ( )

A definite must read for anyone who loved Peter Pan growing up!! I absolutely loved how the original story was twisted into something new while also keeping so much the same. It makes me want to immediately go back and re-watch the movie. ( )

I read about 22% and I am dnfing in chapter 7.
I was really excited about a peter pan retelling because I loved the og books and I also like what Disney did with the story (even if there's not nearly as much blood and fights as in tbe orignal).
This book is not a fun retelling, the characters introduced are boring! I understand the fragility of Wendy, being the survivor and having amnesia about her time away so I can forgive some of her behavior. But she still feels dumb and like she has no agency. Peter feels boring too! Their back and forth is so infantile and goes nowhere (granted, I am dnfing mid conversation so it might change but after 2 or 3 pages of the same conversation I am kind of uninterested now).
Also, the story feels repetitive. Up until this chapter only one thing had happened and based on that one thing we got: 2 very similar conversations with the police, several instances of Wendy feeling bad (understandably so) but using the same words!, same reactions from characters like her mom. Same lines by Peter (Wendy? Wendy! Wendy Wendy? Wendy! Wendy. Should I not call you Wendy?).
I know this is a book for kids. Obviously. But somehow this book feels more infantile in pages I've read than the original Peter Pan and I hate that. Maybe it gets better, but I don't think it would for me when I am so dissapointed already. ( )

***Contains Spoilers***

I really wasn’t a fan of this book. I was surprised because I thought I would. I heard such wonderful things about Aiden Thomas’ Cemetery Boys that I had high expectations. I found that I had to force myself to keep reading. A lot of the plot could have been removed and it would not have affected the story at all. I felt a lot of the story was so predictable. Much of the story had plot holes. The character development was nonexistent.

While reading this book, I kept thinking about the movie Hook with Robin Williams. I kept wondering if the author was going in that direction and to explain how Peter ended up in our world. It seemed like the author was setting up the story to show that Peter wanted a change in his life. Plus why would he spend so much of the book developing a relationship between Wendy and Peter. If Peter stayed, I was interested to see how another Lost Boy would take over. Thinking about all this helped me to keep reading. Only to find out that Peter went back to his old life. Maybe if the author left them as friends instead of a love interest I would have felt differently about this book. ( )

No agency for the protagonist. ( )
