Over on The Writer Diaries, I was recently thrilled to talk with Brianna Shrum about her newly released book, NEVER NEVER from Spencer Hill Press. I am so excited to read this Peter Pan retelling as our YAgabonds book of the month in December. What could be better than spending my holiday downtime with a charming new version of Captain Hook? Stay tuned as I post about my reading experiences.

In the meantime, here’s a bit about NEVER NEVER:
James Hook is a child who only wants to grow up.
When he meets Peter Pan, a boy who loves to pretend and is intent on never becoming a man, James decides he could try being a child – at least briefly. James joins Peter Pan on a holiday to Neverland, a place of adventure created by children’s dreams, but Neverland is not for the faint of heart. Soon James finds himself longing for home, determined that he is destined to be a man. But Peter refuses to take him back, leaving James trapped in a world just beyond the one he loves. A world where children are to never grow up.
But grow up he does.
And thus begins the epic adventure of a Lost Boy and a Pirate.
This story isn’t about Peter Pan; it’s about the boy whose life he stole. It’s about a man in a world that hates men. It’s about the feared Captain James Hook and his passionate quest to kill the Pan, an impossible feat in a magical land where everyone loves Peter Pan.
