Review Source: Blog Tour

Northern was supposed to be a fresh start—a place where people didn’t know who I was or how I had spent years in and out of mental institutes. People didn't know about my parents death or the island no one heard of. But when Peter sits next to me in lit class, I can’t stop the memories, and I don’t want to. He looks too much like the boy from the island, and despite my best intentions, coaxes my secrets from me.

He’s gorgeous, irresistible, a little mad, and completely lost—we are a pair of broken cogs in a world neither of us truly fits into. He is somehow gentle and fierce, heartbreaking in his devotion and savage in his defense.

When Belle, his best friend, shows up, pale and lovely and sick, Peter pulls away from me, a startling withdrawal. It’s a relationship that scares and confuses me. She is at times warm and friendly, and other times is violent and unpredictable.

Peter says that he wants me, but refuses to let himself get close. And there are secrets, surrounding both of us, that border on nightmares. As the memories close in, as Belle gets sicker and more violent, I’m torn between what is true and what I believe, and what this magical boy knows about my mysterious past.

Gwen Barrie has been in a mental institute for years since she met a boy who took her to an island to that doesn't exist. That's what everyone tells her. While out sailing with her parents, they become victims and are killed by pirates leaving Gwen stuck out in the ocean for several weeks. Of course, everyone thinks she created this boy and island as a coping mechanism to deal with what occurred to her parents. So why does he show up and sit next to her in Lit class at Northern and calls himself 'Peter'? AND, this time people can see him. Gwen starting college is a huge step, she needs to prove to herself, and others, that she is completely sane. Peter showing up rattles her sanity. She knows she should stay away but, the heart wants what the heart wants! Then his best friend, Belle, shows up and shakes her sanity that much more. Peter is Belle's, or so she claims and Gwen is having none of if.

I have not read many re-tellings before but, I feel the need to say that this is a re-telling done right. This new adult contemporary version of Peter Pan by Nazarea Andrews takes it to a whole new level. One, that is totally enjoyable. Peter's character is perfection. Sure, he annoyed me most of the time, but HELLO Peter has child-like tendencies. Gwen, I didn't relate to but I totally felt for her. I couldn't imagine to have to struggle between what's real and what's not. I could feel her frustration. At times I didn't want Peter and Gwen to work out together because their relationship is almost toxic but it's all a part of this not-so-sane ride Andrews takes us through.

Who has ever wondered what Peter would be like all grown up? Who has ever wanted Peter to grow up? Girl Lost will show you a grown up Peter and, let me tell you, he's pretty damn hot!

  1. I really like the retelling, and I just read a Peter Pan one, it was pretty good. This sounds like a good one too. Glad it was a good read for you. Great review.

  2. I want to read this! It's definitely outside what I normally read, but it looks great!
