Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
Title: The Stars Turned Away
Author: Lisa Maxwell
Release Date: February 2nd, 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.
Why I’m waiting?
NEVERLAND! Is this a retelling? A re-imagining? All I know is that I saw Neverland in the synopsis and my heart beat faster and I lost my cool I am a sucker for anything fae, pirate, hero, Neverland, etc. and I am so looking forward to this!
