Waiting on Wednesday (58)

Waiting on Wednesday
is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine
 that showcases upcoming releases 
that people are very much anticipating.

I've never really been a mega-fan of Peter Pan. However, after reading Tiger Lily (and dubbing it my number one book of 2012), Peter Pan became a thing I wanted more of. So when I heard about today's pick, I was interested. And when I heard there was a love triangle between Wendy, Peter Pan, and Hook, I was all "OH MY GOSH WHAT IS AIR?!" So when there are ARCs of this, may they follow the second star to the right and go straight on to my house, because I NEED ONE.

A twisty story about love, loss, and lies, this contemporary oceanside adventure is tinged with a touch of dark magic as it follows seventeen-year-old Wendy Darling on a search for her missing surfer brothers. Wendy’s journey leads her to a mysterious hidden cove inhabited by a tribe of young renegade surfers, most of them runaways like her brothers. Wendy is instantly drawn to the cove’s charismatic leader, Pete, but her search also points her toward Pete's nemesis, the drug-dealing Jas. Enigmatic, dangerous, and handsome, Jas pulls Wendy in even as she's falling hard for Pete. A radical reinvention of a classic, Second Star is an irresistible summer romance about two young men who have yet to grow up--and the troubled beauty trapped between them.

  6. Wow, i've only ever done Peter Pan in movie form, you know the animated one you watched as a kid, so it'd be cool to see a re-telling. I like how they've changed the characters up as well. Very nice :)
