I have to give it to Daniel and Dina Nayeri, they have really impressed me with their creative ability when it comes to retelling classic stories. First with Another Faust and now taking the well known Peter Pan and making it their own. I'm a huge fan of the classics so I usually love a good retelling and Another Pan was no exception. When Peter Pan and the Lost Boys, old Egyptian curses and lore, and a posh New York school are combined, readers will find themselves in for an incredible adventure. One of my favorite elements in this story was the attraction and chemistry between Wendy Darling and Peter (a new resident advisor at Marlowe). In the classic this pairing is hinted at but never actualized so it was fun to see the take the Nayeri's took on this. What girls wouldn't fall for Peter right? He's charming, handsome and incredible witty and Wendy falls hook, line and sinker for him. His obsession with eternal youth seems to be his only downfall. While I enjoyed Wendy and Peter's interaction, her brother John did at times bother me. His humor and slang became somewhat irksome and I must admit he was not a favorite character of mine. But the lost boys did make up for my lack of enthusiasm over John Darling. Their texting of "happy thoughts" and their overall part in the story had me smiling a good bit of the way through. While this book was the second in the Another series, I don't think that it's necessary to read Another Faust first. Some of the original characters pop up and make reappearances in this installment but this story is very must a stand alone. It was full of adventure, romance, difficult quests and hard decisions and it was so much fun to be taken on the ride. I think for the most part old fans of the original classic will not be dissapointed for insulted, as is sometimes the case with retellings. I can't wait to see what's next in the Another series.

I've read both Another Faust and Another Pan, and I think that Another Pan was a little weird, and the plot was jumped into too soon. I would've liked to see some development between Wendy and Peter before she just ultimately jumps in to help him. I think that Nayeri may have strung along the plot a little too soon when it could've been developed more; however, I think the characters created here have a similar resemblance to Disney's creations.

Gr 7+ Finally Peter Pan comes to the 21st century. With his band of Lost Boys (or LBs as they are called) and 21st century gadgets the authors masterfully combine a classic tale with modern life and technology and most importantly edgy use of Egyptology. Peter Pan fans and non-fans alike will love this book. George Darling, father of teens Wendy and John (no Michael), is a professor of Egyptology at exclusive New York Marlow school, where Wendy and John attend. Peter, a new RA at the school, is chasing the elusive "Book of Gates" that Professor Darling is using in a school exhibit. This book explains the 5 legends of ancient Egyptian mummies and is the key to finding the sought after 'bonedust.' This bonedust renders humans immortal and Peter wants it. Peter, Wendy and John embark on an adventure likened to the tales of Percy Jackson, but with a little romance thrown in. Perfectly timed for middle and high school readers it has everything a reader could want.
