Straight on till Morning Book Review

As with all the books in the A Twisted Tale series these novels take a story we all know, like Peter Pan, and mixes things up a bit. With Wendy as a governess, finding her own way, and Tink making mischief, it will be up to these two to save Neverland from Captain Hook. What we loved about this book is that heroine role that Wendy takes on in the story. While as a character she always spoke her mind, Wendy really comes into her own as a character. As typical of any governess, she is able, and capable of making a difference and rallying the troops to save the island. Peter Pan fans will be happy to see her step easily into this role. We also loved the inside glimpse to special places in Neverland we had only before seen on the map. So many of the adventures take places in the jungle, with the lost boys. And then of course Captain Hook is as black-hearted as always and dare we say difficult as ever to defeat! An exciting tale for any Neverland fan, complete with pirates, Nana and secret hideouts.

Straight on till Morning: A Twisted Tale Synopsis

What if Wendy first traveled to Neverland . . . with Captain Hook?

Sixteen-year-old Wendy Darling’s life is not what she imagined it would be. The doldrums of an empty house after her brothers have gone to school, the dull parties where everyone thinks she talks too much, and the fact that her parents have decided to send her away to Ireland as a governess—it all makes her wish things could be different. Wendy’s only real escape is in writing down tales of Never Land. After nearly meeting her hero, Peter Pan, four years earlier, she still holds on to the childhood hope that his magical home truly exists. She also holds on to his shadow. So when an opportunity to travel to Never Land via pirate ship presents itself, Wendy makes a deal with the devil. But Never Land isn’t quite the place she imagined it would be. Unexpected dangers and strange foes pop up at every turn, and a little pixie named Tinker Bell seems less than willing to help. But when Captain Hook reveals some rather permanent and evil plans for Never Land, it’s up to the two of them to save Peter Pan—and his world.
