It’s been four months since seventeen-year-old Livy Cloud lost her younger sister, but she isn’t quite ready to move on with her life — not even close. She’d rather spend her time at the Seattle Children’s hospital, reading to the patients and holding onto memories of the sister who was everything to her and more.

But when she meets the mysterious and illusive Meyer she is drawn into a world of adventure, a world where questions abound.

Is she ready to live life without her sister? Or more importantly, is she brave enough to love again?

In this modern reimagining of Peter Pan, will Livy lose herself to Neverland or will she find what she’s been searching for?

(Goodreads Synopsis)

** I received a free advanced copy this book from NetGalley in exchange for a honest review**

When I first read the synopsis for this book I really like the idea of Peter Pan type world. I guess that's what really pulled me in.One thing I like about this was that the story was interwoven with the modern world which made it more realistic and put a different spin the fairy-tale.  The start of the story Livy is very focused on her sisters death and it kind of consumes her to the point where its taken over her life. Then in comes Meyer who is adventurous and daring, he helps Livy heal. I found that the start of the novel was quite hard to actually get into because I felt as though the writing but it definitely got better as the story continued. I can't say that I fully enjoyed it because I didn't. The first half just felt a bit repetitive and it dragged on a bit but once Never land was introduced I started to enjoy it.

Overall: For the most part of the novel I enjoyed it and I think that any peter pan fans out there would enjoy this retelling of an original tale.
