Gwen is always moving around. She has never felt comfortable in an area she and her mom have stayed, not that she had any time to. The summer Gwen moves to London is the time everything her mother did is revealed as to why. The first night Gwen and her friend, Olivia, are kidnapped and taken to Neverland, but this is not the Neverland found in fairytales. Can Gwen find the courage to lead her and Olivia home, or will they be forever lost in the shadowy grip of a well know fairy tale hero?
I really liked this book. It was the most amazing way to look at a well known land and fairy tale. I think it has the perfect mix of adventure with a bit of magic and romance. Mature Content is PG because it is talking about some kissing and romance. Violence is PG because there is a small battle along with killing and people breaking like pottery.
