Everland

“The only way to grow up is to survive”.

 

I love the idea of this book.

A deadly virus, steampunk, danger, and heaps of adventure.  Peter Pan and Captain Hook in a way you would never imagine. I love how some of our old traditional stories are being retold with robust Young Adult re-imaginings. 

The trailer is very brief but moody and enticing. I just want to dive right in and explore the landscape. The wonderful sepia tones of this trailer add such a strong sense of setting. 

Gwen Darling and her siblings have survived the bombs, a deadly virus outbreak, and an army of Marauders bent on abducting the war’s youngest victims. But when Captain Hook snatches her sister, Gwen will stop at nothing to get her back, even if means sacrificing her own life. In Everland, the only way to grow up is to survive.

 This is one to look out for. It is on my list!
