Lost in the Never Woods

When children start to go missing in the local woods, a teen girl must face her fears and a past she can't remember to rescue them.  This atmospheric novel from the author of Cemetery Boys (Longlisted for the 2020 National Book Award for Young People’s Literature) is a Peter Pan retelling "Thomas’s immersive prose and nuanced, trauma-informed perspective add real depth to Barrie’s classic characters." [from Publishers Weekly review]

Lost in the Never Woods by Aiden Thomas (03/23/21)
It’s been five years since Wendy and her two brothers went missing in the woods, but when the town’s children start to disappear, the questions surrounding her brothers’ mysterious circumstances are brought back into the light. Attempting to flee her past, Wendy almost runs over an unconscious boy lying in the middle of the road.  Peter, a boy she thought lived only in her stories, asks for Wendy’s help to rescue the missing kids. But, in order to find them, Wendy must confront what’s waiting for her in the woods.
