Can't-Wait Wednesday: Straight on Till Morning

Can't-Wait Wednesday is hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings and helps us spotlight upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating!

Straight on Till Morning
Liz Braswell
Expected publication date: February 4, 2020
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. - from Goodreads
I've really been loving this Twisted Tale series, which asks What if... questions and reimagines your favorite Disney movies - now it's time for Peter Pan!

  3. I love Peter Pan, so I should probably check this out. Retellings are a hit/miss situation for me, but I think this one sounds promising. Thanks for putting it on my radar.

  13. I have this one on my TBR as well! I love the idea of a Wendy and Hook mashup. It makes me think of Captain Jack Sparrow and Elizabeth from Pirates of the Caribbean. ;)

  14. So besides Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan is my all time favorite story. I love the idea of it. So I definitely want to read this one. I absolutely love the cover for this too. It's completely fucked me in and I haven't even read it.
