Overview

SHADES OF NEVERLAND is a whimsical re-imagining of J.M. Barrie�s beloved story for anyone who has ever put away the best parts of themselves with their childhood. When Peter oversees Wendy getting her first romantic "thimble" (kiss) and the conflict of emotions causes him to grow up ever so slightly and lose his eternal boyhood. The boy, who shudders at the word office, finds the London stage circa 1910. Wendy, whose life of propriety has been planned out by her domineering aunt, secretly falls in love with Peter and vice versa. They have no memory of each other but the Neverlands�which are always seeking to break through, haunt their dreams. This charming story is filled with Easter eggs, names and locations connected to the original Barrie play and text.

Meet the Author

Carey Corp wrote her first book, a brilliant retelling of Star Wars, at the prodigious age of seven. Since then, her love affair of reinvention has continued to run amuck. Writing both literary fiction and stories for young adults, she begins each morning consuming copious amounts of coffee while weaving stories that capture her exhaustive imagination. She harbors a voracious passion (in no consistent order) for mohawks, Italy, musical theater, chocolate, and Jane Austen. Her debut novel for teens, The Halo Chronicles: The Guardian, earned her national recognition as 2010 Golden Heart finalist for best young adult fiction. Coming August 20, 2013: Doon (book 1 of the DOON series), a young adult novel loosely based on the concept of the musical Brigadoon, used with permission from the Alan Jay Lerner Estate & the Frederick Loewe Foundation, and co-written with Lorie Langdon.
