Lost Boy: The True Story of Captain Hook
"From the national bestselling author of Alice comes a familiar story with a dark hook—a tale about Peter Pan and the friend who became his nemesis, a nemesis who may not be the blackhearted villain Peter says he is…

There is one version of my story that everyone knows.

 And then there is the truth. This is how it happened. How I went from being Peter Pan’s first—and favorite—lost boy to his greatest enemy.

Peter brought me to his island b
ecause there were no rules and no grownups to make us mind. He brought boys from the Other Place to join in the fun, but Peter's idea of fun is sharper than a pirate’s sword. Because it’s never been all fun and games on the island. Our neighbors are pirates and monsters. Our toys are knife and stick and rock—the kinds of playthings that bite.
Peter promised we would all be young and happy forever."

Growing up, I never cared much about the Disney Peter Pan movie/story. thought I did love the movie Finding Neverlad. However, in recent years I've started reading a variety of different Peter Pan retellings and Peter Pan-inspired stories (Tiger Lily, Alias Hook, etc.), and I've really grow to love it. This particular one really grabs my attention, and I am dying to read it!

What do you think about this upcoming release? What are your anticipated upcoming releases?
