    great twist on an old favorite

    As always, Ms. Lain has created another fantastic story using the favorite fairy tale of Peter Pan. I am always excited when another in this series comes out as the storylines are amazing and the twists are so original you can't help but smile. Wendell and Peter are so opposite that you would think there is no way this will work. But they always say opposites attract and in this case the characters are going to have some work cut out for them. The lost boys, tinker bell, Neverland and even Hook play major roles in this modern day adventure. Ms. Lain thought of everything and created a fascinating storyline that will keep you glued to the pages. Great characters, fun adaptions to the old versions and Hook still up to no good will entertain and delight the reader. The series just keeps getting better and I eagerly await what she comes up with next. I volunteered to read this story for my honest opinion. In one word......Awesome....:)

    Life is like a fairy tale

    This is a lovely retelling of the fairy tale of Peter Pan. It is always difficult to rewrite a well-known fairy tale. You don’t want to lose the essence of what the story is about, but you also want to give your own, and in this case, modern twist to it. Tara Lain managed all that perfectly. Reading her story, I got snippets of the classic inside my head. At the same time, I found new and surprising elements. The old adage of opposites attract is certainly true for Wen(dell) and Peter. Wen has brought up his younger sister, Michaela, and younger brother, John, from a very young age. His memories of being around his mother are ambiguous. He loved her free nature and spirits, but those were also the things he hated the most as she shunned her responsibilities towards her family. As a result, Wen does his utmost to do better with his siblings and has grown into a responsible, steadfast man. Peter is his opposite. Artistic, free-spirited and living every day as it comes. He doesn’t want to be tied down or taken care off. He is his own man. Tara Lain did a wonderful job bringing these characters to life. They started at the other end of the street, but slowly they met in the middle. Through Peter, Wen learns there is more than his job and making money albeit it for feeding his siblings. He can loosen up once in a while. Peter discovers that loving someone and taking care of them don’t have to be restrictive and stifling. I really liked their chemistry. Their interactions are not overly sexual, but I felt the connection through their actions and funny dialogues. Among the supporting cast, there are also great characters. John is a riot; Michaela is a very mature sixteen-year-old; The Lost Boys are super together with Samu as my favorite; and Tink? She speaks as quickly as her namesake flies. As always, Mr. Pennymaker appears in the story just at the right time. He is and always will be an oddball, but with his heart in the right place. Everything to help drifters finding their way home to each other. Neverland becomes Everland. This is the fourth installment of the Pennymaker tales. It can be read as a standalone.
