Forever Found
(Neverland Lost, #2)

Losing Gwen was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to survive. I’ve never loved anyone the way I love her.

But finding her was never about that. And now that I have found her–now that she knows the truth about me and the Island, I have to trust her to believe. Because her leaving me didn’t just destroy me–its killing Neverland.

I need her to love me. But we all need her to believe again.

Peter Pan has grown up and found the girl who left–but the stakes are higher than ever in this romantic conclusion to the story begun in Girl Lost.

I actually read Forever Found the same day it hit my inbox. I had loved Girl Lost and thought it was such an interesting retelling of Peter Pan. I couldn’t wait to see how things worked out. I wasn’t disappointed.

I can say that it was different to hear things from Peter’s perspective. I kept wanting to know what was going on Gwen’s head too. It was nice to get a little more history about Peter that wouldn’t have the same feel if it was in Gwen’s voice. This book definitely needed to come from Peter so he could tell his story. I loved finding more about the island, lost boys and how Belle and Peter came to meet.

I don’t want to give anything away but it was definitely a satisfying ending and not what I expected. I was really pleased with it. If you enjoyed Girl Lost, I think you are going to be happy with this. If you haven’t read this series yet, you definitely should. I actually wasn’t the biggest fan of Peter Pan as a kid but retellings like this make me want to read more of them.


Girl Lost
(Neverland Lost, #1)

Northern was supposed to be a fresh start—a place where people didn’t know who I was or how I had spent years in and out of mental institutes. People didn't know about my parents death or the island no one heard of. But when Peter sits next to me in lit class, I can’t stop the memories, and I don’t want to. He looks too much like the boy from the island, and despite my best intentions, coaxes my secrets from me.

He’s gorgeous, irresistible, a little mad, and completely lost—we are a pair of broken cogs in a world neither of us truly fits into. He is somehow gentle and fierce, heartbreaking in his devotion and savage in his defense.

When Belle, his best friend, shows up, pale and lovely and sick, Peter pulls away from me, a startling withdrawal. It’s a relationship that scares and confuses me. She is at times warm and friendly, and other times is violent and unpredictable.

Peter says that he wants me, but refuses to let himself get close. And there are secrets, surrounding both of us, that border on nightmares. As the memories close in, as Belle gets sicker and more violent, I’m torn between what is true and what I believe, and what this magical boy knows about my mysterious past.
