Peter is still the boy who doesn't grow up. Wendy is a girl who had to grow up too soon. And Wendy's brother, Michael, has autism and a connection to The Island of Lost Children. When Peter leaves his island home, it's to search for pick-up soccer games and mock sword fights. Wendy spends her evenings looking after her two brothers, bratty JJ as well as Michael, while her parents work nights. In the midst of several unusual events--including the disappearance of her classmate, Lily, at odds with her adoptive mother--Wendy doesn't realize that Peter's pirate nemesis is keeping an eye on her. Everything changes for Wendy and her family when a peculiar fairy named Bellatresse helps Peter find the girl whose stories he once listened to outside her bedroom window.
With its quirky humor and occasionally touching moments, The Island of Lost Children is about children creating their own stories, families, and communities, all while swashbuckling, navigating mystical rivers, riding child-made roller coasters, and, of course, sailing high through the open skies.
