KIRKUS REVIEW

Peter Pan is reimagined and set at the tony Marlowe School in New York. John and Wendy Darling are the children of Marlowe’s resident Egyptologist, and Peter is the new resident advisor. In the process of archiving some artifacts for their father, Wendy and John uncover a secret maze that hides bone dust, which Peter uses to stay eternally young. John and Wendy get clues to where they should go in the maze through their father’s classroom Egyptology lectures, but a cranky museum curator and an evil woman who poses as the school nurse are determined to stop them. The adventure and Egypt-as-life parallels keep the pages turning, but they sometimes get tangled in the subplots of romance, family and popularity. John, Wendy and Peter, though, are sympathetic characters who make Peter Pan’s themes of growth and fear of the unknown come alive. Though this volume stands as a companion, not a sequel, to Another Faust (2009), readers who are unfamiliar with the first book may be confused about the school nurse’s true identity. (Fiction. 14 & up)
