London. 1789. More than anything in the world, Wendy Darling wants to be the captain of a ship, but no one believes a woman can be a navy captain. No one, that is, except Wendy Darling.
When she learns the Home Office is accepting a handful of women into its ranks, she jumps at the chance, joining the fight against the most formidable threat England has ever faced. Magic.
But the secret service isn’t exactly what she hoped. Accompanied by a reimagined cast of the original Peter Pan, Wendy soon discovers that her dreams are as far away as ever, that choosing sides isn’t as simple as she thought, and that the only man who isn’t blinded by her gender might be the worst friend anyone could ask for.
Anyone, that is, except Wendy Darling.
Praise for The Wendy, by Erin Michelle Sky & Steven Brown:
“All the markings of a classic … captivating and delightful.” — Lydia Sherrer, USA TODAY Bestselling Author of Love, Lies & Hocus Pocus
“One of This Year’s Hottest New YA Series” — Goodreads
“This is a strong retelling of Peter Pan, with an empowered female protagonist who carves her own path. Wendy’s sharp wit is truly impressive.” — School Library Journal
“From page one right up to the end, The Wendy held me enthralled.” — Readers’ Favorite
What a marvelous book! The authors have taken the story of Peter Pan and retold it from Wendy’s perspective. Her life is a tale of true feminism. Loved the perseverance of a girl finding a way to train in sword fighting and combat to become a secret agent in 18th century England.
Can’t wait to read the next book in the series!
Wow! I really liked this story. This was a retelling of Peter pan. The character development was well done. The story is clean enough for any age reader. I look forward to reading more.
Having been raised to my father’s rather dramatic reading of Peter Pan, and my children the same by me, I found The Wendy to be, well . . . FUN!! Read aloud to the children!! My grandchildren will hear it too!!
