"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
Journey to Never Land in the second book in
the Disney Villains-focused Dark Ascension series, which shares the
untold story of teenaged Captain Hook and his twin sister Marlene,
penned by New York Times bestselling author Lauren DeStefano.
Before Captain Hook became Never Land’s villain, there were two siblings seeking a home . . .
James and Marlene have always felt out of place in their humdrum fishing village, longing to escape the quiet lives their parents envision for them. But when Marlene’s birthday wish transports them both to an unsettling, magical paradise called Never Land, they discover an unexpected the chance to stay forever with the charismatic Peter and his Lost Boys.
As the twins delve into the island’s violent secrets, their actions reignite a conflict between the fractured Lost Boys—and for the first time in their lives, James and Marlene find themselves at odds. With a war brewing and their memories slipping away every minute they spend in Never Land, they must choose whether to stay or go. But even if the twins stand together, Never Land--and Peter--won’t allow them to leave so easily.
How far are James and Marlene willing to go to chart their own destinies? And if the price for freedom is losing their true selves--and each other--is it worth the cost?

I am pretty curious about this book :D I like that cover a whole lot. And I own a whole bunch of books by Lauren; though it has been some years now since I read her books. But liked a bunch of them. So I will give this one a chance too, and hoping that I will love it :) Sounds like a great sort of Peter Pan re-telling.
What are you waiting for on this lost Wednesday?
