Promises to be a really good book with excellent narration.

When children start to go missing in the local woods, a teen girl must face her fears and a past she can't remember to rescue them in this atmospheric YA novel, Lost in the Never Woods from the author of Cemetery Boys.

It’s been five years since Wendy and her two brothers went missing in the woods, but when the town’s children start to disappear, the questions surrounding her brothers’ mysterious circumstances are brought back into the light. Attempting to flee her past, Wendy almost runs over an unconscious boy lying in the middle of the road...

Peter, a boy she thought lived only in her stories, asks for Wendy’s help to rescue the missing kids. But, in order to find them, Wendy must confront what’s waiting for her in the woods.

This is a wonderful continuation on the Peter Pan story. I do love how his character is explained and how important of a being he truly is. This book does deal with trauma and has some horror aspect in the story line. Both of which are needed to appreciate what it is that Peter Pan really does. I suspect that this isn't the last we hear of Peter Pan. ( )

This is a great take-off on Peter Pan. In this instance, Peter's impact spans two generations, Wendy's and her mom's, who is a nurse. This time, Wendy is a shell-shocked high school senior, still unable to get past missing memories and other traumatic effects of what happened to her and her younger brothers five years ago. She reappeared six months after the three of them vanished. Her brothers did not. When Peter appears, or more accurately reappears, he needs her help to capture and re-attach his shadow. What ensues is a mix of scary, evil, hopeful and highly emotional. The ending left me with the same bittersweet sense the I had when I finished reading The Golden Compass, and that's very high praise. ( )

Lost in the Never Woods takes the bones of Peter Pan and builds around them an horror tinged tale about grief, loss, and dealing with trauma. It's also a hopeful story about facing your fears and healing, about forgiving yourself.

On Wendy Darling's 18th birthday she almost hits a boy lying unconscious in the middle of the road. He looks like the boy she keeps compulsively drawing every time there's a pen in her hand. He knows her name. There's just one problem: he can't possibly be real. He's a boy from the stories her mom told her as a kid. The ones she used to tell her brothers before all three of them went missing and only she returned. This impossible boy claiming to know her and her brothers shows up just as more kids are going missing. Now it's up to Wendy to face her biggest fears and confront her past. If she doesn't, more kids may be lost forever in the Never Woods.

For the past few months I've been in a huge reading slump and this was just the book I needed to get me out of it. Normally I'm not a big one for Peter Pan stories, but this modern take got me with it's blend of the fantasy and escapism of the original with mystery, horror, and a touch of romance. Thomas deftly weaves together familiar elements from the original story and films with this eerie tale of missing children and evil, both mundane and supernatural.

The true heart of the story is Wendy and her trauma. Living with the grief of her missing brothers and how it's changed her family, plus the fact that she returned alone with no memory of what happened made her internalize it. Instead of processing it, she's let it take over. She blames herself. The novel is largely about her learning to face that and come to terms with it. While that sounds like a meditative kind of novel, Thomas manages to marry that story of grief with a fantasy mystery that drags you deep into the action.

Overall this is a well paced interesting tale that will appeal to teens and adults alike.

Wendy must work with mysterious outsider Peter Pan to help solve the cases of missing children, including her brothers. Wendy Darling is driving home when she nearly hits a boy in the road. It's Peter Pan and, while he's convinced they know each other, Wendy is certain she doesn't have a clue who this boy is. Wendy's family is still reeling from the disappearance of her two brothers, John and Michael, from 5 years ago; the case has long been cold. When Peter shows up, it is in the midst of other children being taken from the neighborhood. Detectives believe that Peter has something to do with the disappearances. Wendy's run-ins with Peter make her look a little iffy, as well. Wendy also deals with pervasive images of an ominous tree that haunts her dreams and idle mind. There is a darkness in the woods that may be the cause of the disappearances. Wendy and Peter must work together to confront this darkness to solve the case of the missing children, her brothers included.

Overall, I really enjoyed this novel. The writing, for the most part, was very well done. There is a twist at the end that has some breadcrumbs leading up to it. The darker elements of this retelling were engaging and satisfying. My only negative is that the ending and resolution of the conflict felt rushed, and the villain's defeat felt too easily accomplished. Give this to readers who enjoy fairy tale retellings, dark and twisty elements, and thrillers. ( )
