Introducing NEVER NEVER.
So this book is about Captain Hook's side of the story. From when he was just a boy named James who wanted to be a man and--okay, wait, I think I'll just go ahead and show you the official blurb, all right?
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.
This lovely thing will be out in September 2015 from Spencer Hill Press (woohoo!), and those of you who love retellings and sympathetic villains will want to add it to your Goodreads list and/or keep up with Brianna on Twitter. YEAHHHHHHHHH!!
