James Hook is a child who only wants to grow up.

When he meets Peter Pan, a boy who loves to pretend and is intent on never becoming a man, James decides he could try being a child—at least briefly. James joins Peter Pan on a holiday to Neverland, a place of adventure created by children’s dreams, but Neverland is not for the faint of heart. Soon James finds himself longing for home, determined that he is destined to be a man. But Peter refuses to take him back, leaving James trapped in a world just beyond the one he loves. A world where children are to never grow up.

But grow up he does.

And thus begins the epic adventure of a Lost Boy and a Pirate.

This story isn’t about Peter Pan; it’s about the boy whose life he stole. It’s about a man in a world that hates men. It’s about the feared Captain James Hook and his passionate quest to kill the Pan, an impossible feat in a magical land where everyone loves Peter Pan.

Except one.

A Peter Pan retelling from the perspective of Captain Hook??

I’m completely addicted to retellings, but I haven’t read any based on Captain Hook, so I can’t WAIT to try this! Plus, that synopsis sounds so amazing! Maybe it’s a little bit evil of me… but I’m kinda hoping Hook wins!! *Mwahahaha* September isn’t too far away (this year is FLYING by!), so not too much wait time.

What do you think? Are you as hopelessly addicted to retellings as I am?? And what are you waiting on this week?


  1. This one is new to me, but it does sound interesting. I hope you enjoy reading it.

  2. OMG! Have you ever felt that wendy is peter pan's "the one that got away?" I wish there's a retelling where Peter Pan DOES grow up and end up with Wendy <3

    1. I'm so curious about Never Never! I haven't read a Peter Pan retelling like this before, and I can't wait to see how it's handled. Thanks for stopping by, Lizzie!

  4. DUUUUUUUUDE! That sounds awesome! I love re-tellings too! I've read a small handful of re-tellings about Peter Pan already and there was one Hook one too! I have another I still need to read but it's in the TBR pile! This one will have to make its way there too! Thanks for letting me know! ;)

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!
