About Never Ever (via Goodreads):

Wylie Dalton didn’t believe in fairy tales or love at first sight.

Then she met a real-life Peter Pan.

When Wylie encounters Phinn—confident, mature, and devastatingly handsome—at a party the night before her brother goes to juvie, she can’t believe how fast she falls for him. And that’s before he shows her how to fly.

Soon Wylie and her brothers find themselves whisked away to a mysterious tropical island off the coast of New York City where nobody ages beyond seventeen and life is a constant party. Wylie’s in heaven: now her brother won’t go to jail and she can escape her over-scheduled life with all its woes and responsibilities—permanently.

But the deeper Wylie falls for Phinn, the more she begins to discover has been kept from her and her brothers. Somebody on the island has been lying to her, but the truth can’t stay hidden forever.


  1. I recently read a Peter Pan re-imagining and loved it, so I'm super curious and excited about this one! What a lovely cover!! Thanks for sharing ^__^

    1. Oooh awesome! I haven't read any Peter Pan retellings, but I've always wanted to!! Isn't the cover absolutely gorgeous?? I'm pretty excited for this one ^_^

  2. I love the cover for this book! Tons of Peter Pan retellings have been popping up this year, so I'm interested to see how this one will be. I'm not a fan of the original story by J.M. Barrie, but I watched Finding Neverland in New York City this summer and loved it.

    1. I've never read Peter Pan, but I've always been intrigued by the idea of the story and its many retellings :)

  3. ANOTHER Peter Pan retelling? Man, these are popular right now! I need to read a few :D

    1. Agreed--I need to read some as well! I barely know anything about Peter Pan (since I haven't read it or watched any movie adaptions), but the retellings always look so good!
