A re-imagination of the classic Peter Pan story, orphan Peter and his friend Molly are part of a sea-faring adventure to save the world. Pirates, Crocodiles, thieves, and a certain magical dust all reappear in this journey, but with vastly different events than the classic Peter Pan narrative. A very exciting children’s novel that moves quickly and keeps the reader wondering about the hidden secrets of these once familiar characters. -Lauren

The best book I’ve read so far this quarantine. Maybe even the best kids book I’ve read this year! It’s just about some basic events in an average suburban kid’s life, but BAM! It hits you over and over again with BEAUTIFUL WRITING that sums up THE REASONS LIFE IS WORTH LIVING, in a subtle and casual way (not heavy-handed or overbearing). -Anne W
