“Any last words?”

“Go to hell, you freaking…filthy…godforsaken…”

Our noses almost touch as he dips his head and brushes a strand of my hair behind my ear. “Angel, the word you’re looking for is pirate.”

Why is there a boy who doesn’t want to grow up?
How can an apple start the sweetest romance in fairytale history?
And what does a ruthless pirate have to do with it all?

Angelina McFarland loves reading fairytales. But she never dreamed of falling right into one herself. That’s exactly what happens when she slips on her balcony and a flying Peter Pan catches her mid-fall.

Ending up in Neverland where no one seems to age and laws of nature are out of control, Angel has no idea how to get home. Worse, the ruthless Captain Hook captures her and keeps her trapped on his ship, the Jolly Roger, where she gets caught between the lines of a timeless battle. But the more time Angel spends with the captain, the more she sees beneath his ruthless fa├žade.

As Angel desperately tries to find a way to return to her real life, she discovers a train ticket to London in her pocket. It won’t be any help in getting off the island, but as her memory fades away the longer she stays, this is all she has left to remind her of her former life and why she can’t give up trying.

Or is staying in Neverland forever the better choice after all?


I was pretty disappointed with this book. I thought that it would be pretty good if the writing was good. But the writing, plot, and characters were all disappointing.

The writing was bad. Characters were all right--there wasn't much character development. The plot was okay. I was actually kind of disappointed with this book because it could have gone in a different direction and turned out really good. I thought Hook had more character development than anyone else, including the main character, Angel. How the story started was weird and quick as well.

I only really liked reading from Hook's/Jame's P.O.V., otherwise it was bland. Angel didn't have much of a personality at all, so I didn't feel her desperation to get home or her "love" for Hook. Maybe if there had been a little more of a background story before Angel fell into Neverland, I would have felt her need to get home to her sisters.

So...Yeah...I don't have much else to say about this book :-/ Sorry for the short review.
