Seven years later, all she wants is a normal life, but shape-shifting shadows plague her dreams and turn her life into a waking nightmare.

The beautiful cover and the synopsis drew me to this book. I was so excited to get an ARC from Chanda Hahn and the opportunity to read this book.

This is not your typical Neverland story with Peter Pan and Wendy, but looks at their lives after they leave Neverland. Wendy is now a teenage who is plagued with nightmares and shadows that change shapes, but doesn't remember anything from her past.

Peter and his side kicks are chasing the shadows that are plaguing Wendy, but now must try to keep her

I’m a big fan of modern retellings of childhood favorites. When I found out Chanda Hahn had written a new version of Peter Pan, I jumped at the chance to read it. I must say I wasn’t disappointed.

Hahn’s reworking of the classic is so imaginative. Neverland isn’t what we grew up thinking it was. There are Lost Boys and Lost Girls as well. Her spin on the characters and their roles left me smiling—Smee as a female psychiatrist, Captain Hook as the head of a secret military group, and even the play

Retelling of Peter Pan

Loved this retelling of Peter Pan. Wendy is an experiment that escaped from a lab. She has no memorise of her time being there.
The formatting could have been better and in some places it could have done with a bit more explanation but all in all a good tale.

Decent storyline if a bit predictable and juvenile at times, several typos in the book and formatting errors which is kind of annoying.

‘Lost Girl’ is a well-written page-turner and brilliant re-imagining of the Peter Pan tale we all know and love. All the classic elements are present, each with a new spin.

For the first seven chapters, readers follow Wendy as a child, locked in the Neverland Institution on an island, fearful of the Red Skulls who force the doctors to run further experiments on the children. Wendy is slow to make friends in her captivity, but the one she calls Boy, with green eyes and auburn hair, she knows she

Neverland is no longer full of fun and mischief.

Wendy is your average teenage girl. She’s co-captain of the cheerleading squad. She has a mother, father, and younger brother. Oh yeah and she sees things no one else can see.

Wendy might not remember Neverland, but it remembers her.

Peter wants nothing more than to forget Neverland.

Peter has been spending the past 7 years trying to save everyone, in order to make up for the guilt he’s harboring. But even he knows, you can’t save everyone.

I love fairy tale re-tellings, and though Peter Pan isn't exactly a classic fairy tale, I'm still going to put it in this category. I loved this; it was a fast-paced YA read that kept me so interested I could barely put the book down. The characters were engaging, and I enjoyed the way Hahn wove details from the original Peter Pan into her story. My only complaint is that now I want to read the next one and I have to wait!

I enjoyed this reimagining of the Peter Pan story. The connections to the original tale worked wonderfully and the new twists were creative. I don't love that Wendy ran away, because as a parent that would be devastating, but I'm more willing to overlook it since this is just a story. The Teddy/Wendy storyline made me sad. I marked no excerpts from the book as I read, but I enjoyed the tale. It was engrossing, and I'm looking forward to the sequel.

Chanda creates wonderful YA characters.

Her characters are so unique, believable and compelling. You quickly come to care about them and their journey. Put that with a great story that is a twist on a famous children's tale and you have a winning combination! Cant wait for book 2.
Overall, this was good. Once I got into the story a bit, I found it interesting, but I almost stopped reading it because the first part just didn't flow. I love most of the other books Chanda Hahn has written, but this one struggled to get off the ground (no pun intended). Hopefully the next in the series will feel more inspired and less like she's trying to meet a deadline.
Alexandra Strong
She did it again. It wasn't even halfway into the book when I was laughing out loud, getting frustrated that a character (or two) hadn't realized something important, and being completely in love with the main characters.

Please publish the next one soon.

Perfect read for every lost boy and girl

It's no secret that everything Peter Pan is a weakness of mine and this author nailed it. Wendy, Peter, Tink, and even Nana make an appearance. But read at your own risk, once you go to Neverland, you may not want to leave.

An interesting twist on the Peter Pan tale, in fact more a whole new entirely different story featuring characters with the same names. It was really clever and I liked the characters, the plot was fast paced and I eagerly await the next instalment.

This is the first book in a new series written by Chanda Hahn and I absolutely freaking LOVED it!!

I knew that it wasn’t going to be a simple Peter Pan story because the synopsis was different and by different I mean…DIFFERENT! There were so many twists and curves to this book that sometimes I really did just have to say “Are you kidding me” out loud! If my husband didn’t already know what a book freak I am, he would probably think I was cra

Love, love, loved! Hate that I have to wait for book #2, but this is definately up to par with her other novels. Her last series was a real disappointment to me, but this one is right up there with her Unenchanted and Iron Butterfly series. I really like fractured fairytales and this one is an awesome modern take on Peter Pan. She has totally redeemed herself in this fans eyes! Waiting with baited breath for the release of Lost Boy!

Great retelling of the Peter Pan story. Made modern, slightly creepy, and even a little humor. It reminded me slightly of the Alice in Zombieland book. A confused girl in the midst of a group of misfits. Looking forward to the next one.

Forget everything you know about Neverland.

No one does retellings quite like Mrs Hahn.
I fell in love with her books, a retelling no less, by chance.
Here I was at home, bored out of my mind and looking for a new book to read, when I came across Unenchented, after that I immediately started the Iron Butterfly, the rest is history. I have read every single book by Hahn so far, and have yet to be disappointed.

Lost Girl is no exception.

In this version of Neverland, 17 year old Wendy is a bit differe

Wendy has always been a bit different. She has nightmares which are not helped by medicine, and, while awake, she sees things others don’t see. Wendy gets a job in a bookstore, in hopes of a bit of normalcy in her teenage life. Unfortunately, nothing is typical about Wendy. That fact is solidified when she sees a boy disappear in front of her eyes at a football game. She meets Peter and his group of friends, and they take her to Neverwood Academy. Peter’s friend Tink isn’t sure that Wendy can be ...more

So pretty much everything Chanda writes, I love. And I'm a sucker for Peter Pan stories and spin offs. So this was just perfect. I've been putting off reading it because now I have to wait FOREVER for the next installment and that's just painful! Can't wait for the next one.

I am a huge fan of Peter Pan & this book did not disappoint me at all. There were so many references to the classic book that even the original author makes an appearance. My favorite character, Peter (of course) was exactly who I imagined in a modern setting; flirty, protective and yet unsure if he was the right leader for a group of kids who were experimented on and abused.

The only reason why I gave it 4 stars was the repetitive & unrealistic way Wendy kept running away. The pace of t
