KIRKUS REVIEW

After defeating Neverland’s crocodile (Hook’s Revenge, 2014), Jocelyn, Capt. Hook’s daughter and heir, sets her sights on finding Hook’s hidden treasure.

Confounded by the encoded treasure map, Jocelyn and her friend Roger, attempt to distract themselves with other dangerous adventures, but the pull of untold riches proves too much to ignore. Unfortunately, the evil Capt. Krueger also hears the siren call of ill-gotten booty. Desperate to win the race for the gold, Jocelyn seeks help from the annoying Peter Pan. When he refuses, Jocelyn and her ragtag crew decide to abduct Pan’s mother, Evie. But Jocelyn soon discovers that their prisoner is not what she originally thought. Neverland touches multiple timelines, meaning one never knows whom one might meet. Sneaky humor, surprising twists, and an outrageously irreverent take on the familiar Neverland tale combine to great effect. Jocelyn’s bravery, loyalty to her crew and her family, and love for adventure make her a terrific heroine. And while Jocelyn’s wild adventure is filled with raucous pirates, snippy fairies, and a terrifying villain, there are also quiet moments. After all, Jocelyn is not only a pirate captain, but an orphan, a friend, and a girl looking toward her future.

An imaginative adventure filled with humor and heart. (Fantasy. 8-12)
