Lost Girl is the first book in The Neverwood Chronicles. It is a Peter Pan retelling of sorts. Peter Pan is, and always will be, one of my very favorite stories. That said, I am very picky about any retellings or reimaginings of it. Lost Girl exceeded my expectation, and I thoroughly enjoyed this story.
The characters were well developed, and I loved the combination of spunky, yet kind, and independent yet still willing to admit she needs help sometimes in Wendy. The character of Peter was perfect, he was imaginative and protective, in charge, yet still a bit immature, and sweet and dreamy as can be. All of the supporting characters had individual personalities and stood out of their own accord well.
The twists and turns throughout the story were well laid out and not very predictable. The story was well thought out, and the ending was enough of completion of this story while still leaving you more than ready for the next.
I give this book 5 dragonflies and can't wait to get started on Lost Boy. Content-wise, this is a young adult, 12+ friendly book.
