There is no place like a dysfunctional home.
Leaving everything behind for the Island was Ricky's dream come true. When his happily ever after is not quite what it seems, he discovers that running away means running toward bigger problems.
Trapped on the Island, Ricky must join together with the only people he can trust to help him face his fears and return home. But the only way off the Island is to confront the person who trapped Ricky and his friends in the first place. With countless enemies and true peril staring them down, Ricky's mission to leave this so-called paradise will become a battle for their very lives.
This book is overall a great and highly original re-telling of peter pan. The story is so imaginative giving a great feel for young adult readers who are interested in a classic with a twist.
I found out about this book from a blog as many of you may get your way finding books as well, well let me tell you...fate was on my side that day because this book has it all.
Full of action, humor, some romance, and very likable characters gives this book a high rating from me. I consider this book a dark horse probably because Dan Elconin hasn't published anything apart from this book.
Elconin has the characteristic of grabbing you right from the start and giving a ride the whole way through for any young adult reader. The book isn't complicated reading wise but it has a good flow for any age reader so don't let this one pass.
