Ten years ago, Peter Pan left Neverland to grow up, leaving behind his adolescent dreams of boyhood and resigning himself to life as Wendy Darling. Growing up, however, has only made him realize how inescapable his identity as a man is.

But when he returns to Neverland, everything has changed: the Lost Boys have become men, and the war games they once played are now real and deadly. Even more shocking is the attraction Peter never knew he could feel for his old rival, Captain Hook—and the realization that he no longer knows which of them is the real villain.

This book is very sweet, and while I don't normally go for romances, I really liked this one. I cried more in this book than any other I can think of, which perhaps says more about my own trans feelings than about this book in particular, but I think that's worthy superlative for the text.

All that said, I think a few points got lost in the weeds, and the third human character in neverland who's name I've forgotten got a short shrift in a plot that is very much about the central romance.
