9781416979678: Never After


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.

About the Author:

Dan Elconin is nineteen years old. This is his first novel. He is originally from San Diego, California and is currently a sophomore at UCLA.

From Booklist:

After Ricky Darlin, a depressed and angry high-school student, encounters Peter Pan one night, he willingly flies away with the mysterious stranger. Upon arrival at Neverland, though, Ricky discovers that Peter is a malevolent being. He does escape Peter’s control, only to meet up with Captain Hook and a small band of outcasts, who battle Peter throughout the novel. Elconin’s story is far removed from J. M. Barrie’s original Edwardian fantasy. Here, Neverland is a violent, alternate world where the lost boys and girls are Peter’s zombie slaves, where possible rape is a plot element, and where strong profanity is a favored means of expression. All this would cause Barrie to reach for his smelling salts, but there is no doubt that the original Peter Pan has a dark underside that this novel enthusiastically explores. Those looking for a spin-off that aims for a gentler tone, though, will want Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson’s Peter and the Starcatchers (2004) and Geraldine McCaughrean’s Peter Pan in Scarlet (2006). Grades 10-12. --Todd Morning
