Waiting on Wednesday: Unhooked by Lisa Maxwell

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine. Today we are waiting for Unhooked by Lisa Maxwell!

I must say that I haven't heard about this author before but I saw this book somewhere (Twitter?) and the summary just got me. I am hooked *wink wink, elbow elbow*

Publication date: 2nd February, 2016
Publisher: Simon Pulse

For as long as she can remember, Gwendolyn Allister has never had a place to call home—all because her mother believes that monsters are hunting them. Now these delusions have brought them to London, far from the life Gwen had finally started to build for herself. The only saving grace is her best friend, Olivia, who’s coming with them for the summer.

But when Gwen and Olivia are kidnapped by shadowy creatures and taken to a world of flesh-eating sea hags and dangerous Fey, Gwen realizes her mom might have been sane all along.

The world Gwen finds herself in is called Neverland, yet it’s nothing like the stories. Here, good and evil lose their meaning and memories slip like water through her fingers. As Gwen struggles to remember where she came from and find a way home, she must choose between trusting the charming fairy-tale hero who says all the right things and the roguish young pirate who promises to keep her safe.

With time running out and her enemies closing in, Gwen is forced to face the truths she’s been hiding from all along. But will she be able to save Neverland without losing herself?
I love Disney and I love Peter Pan. Did you guys see the new movie Pan? Anyway, the book! It is a Peter Pan retelling but apparently it has many twists and Neverland won't be the Disney version, probably not even the original version. It sounds... darker? Oh yes! Give me a dark retelling with not-so-well-known versions of characters like Peter and Hook!

And I like the cover but there will be so many "ship covers" next year... it is officially a trend *sigh*

Are you excited about Unhooked?
