The Stars Turned AwayFor as long as she can remember, Gwendolyn Allister has never had a place to call home—all because her mother believes that monsters are hunting them. Now these delusions have brought them to London, far from the life Gwen had finally started to build for herself. The only saving grace is her best friend, Olivia, who’s coming with them for the summer.

But when Gwen and Olivia are kidnapped by shadowy creatures and taken to a world of flesh-eating sea hags and dangerous Fey, Gwen realizes her mom might have been sane all along.

The world Gwen finds herself in is called Neverland, yet it’s nothing like the stories. Here, good and evil lose their meaning and memories slip like water through her fingers. As Gwen struggles to remember where she came from and find a way home, she must choose between trusting the charming fairy-tale hero who says all the right things and the roguish young pirate who promises to keep her safe.

With time running out and her enemies closing in, Gwen is forced to face the truths she’s been hiding from all along. But will she be able to save Neverland without losing herself?


I am on the roll! Last week I posted a WoW that was based on pirate theme, Blackhearts and now there's this! And it has Neverlands from Peter Pan so this should be extra interesting! Can't wait!



  1. Sounds frightening and intense...the kind of book you stay up late reading. Enjoy! Here's mine: “THE PASSENGER”

  4. I love the sound of this one being based on another fairytale kind of retelling book! I love those and some of the ones that have/will be released in the same kind of fashion as this one!
