Booklist - 07/01/2019 While visiting grandparents in London, Clover worries about her brother, Fergus, who is often misunderstood because of his autism. There, the two siblings—descendants of Wendy Darling—learn that generations of children in their family have gone on Neverland adventures. Soon, Peter Pan shows up at their window, and Clover and Fergus leave London behind. Fergus thrives in the freedom of Neverland, where no one expects him to be a certain way, while Clover falters, often doing the wrong thing by accident. When a terrifying monster from Greek mythology begins kidnapping mermaids, they discover that Neverland’s villains change, depending on the visitors, and the adventure is afoot. Adrian’s exciting tale contains familiar Neverland elements, but the addition of mythology (a passion of Fergus’) injects a fun and interesting new element. The viewpoint alternates in chapters between Clover and Fergus, providing insight into the worries, fears, and growth of both realistic protagonists. A fresh and worthy Neverland update for today’s young readers. - Copyright 2019 Booklist.
