Title: The PAN
Author: Jenny Hickman
Date of Publishing: September 1st, 2020
Since her parents were killed, Vivienne has always felt ungrounded, shuffled through the foster care system. Just when liberation finally seems possible—days before her eighteenth birthday—Vivienne is hospitalized with symptoms no one can explain.
The doctors may be puzzled, but Deacon, her mysterious new friend, claims she has an active Nevergene. His far-fetched diagnosis comes with a warning: she is about to become an involuntary test subject for Humanitarian Organization for Order and Knowledge—or H.O.O.K.
Vivienne can either escape to Neverland’s Kensington Academy and learn to fly (Did he really just say fly?) or risk sticking around to become a human lab rat.
But accepting a place among The P.A.N. means Vivienne must abandon her life and foster family to safeguard their secrets and hide in Neverland’s shadows… forever.
I loved this retelling on Peter Pan! Vivienne! Deacon! Deacon is totally mine! Right off the bat, I was sucked into this world. The scifi aspect was really cool on this too!
Character driven stories are my favorite and this was one of those. I liked that I had a chance to be inside both Vivienne’s and Deacon’s heads! There was mystery, swoon, page-turning awesomeness, and flying! Lots and lots of flying! Now, if only I could fly!
