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?
Buy Neverland here:
At first I was a bit freaked out…after watching Once Upon a Time , Peter Pan is not my favorite character. When I saw the comparison in Neverland, I almost didn’t read it. However I found it to be a great read with a rainy day feel and relatable characters. When Livy’s sister dies of cancer, Livy is doing everything she can to save her sisters best friend. In the process she almost looses her connection with her bff Sheila and meets a boy who turns her entire life around in a beautiful way. My favorite quote is
“-Because there is nothing more serious than death, nothing quite like the possibility of losing something you need to survive”
