Wendy, Darling by A.C. Wise is a dark retelling that flips perspectives, challenges our understanding of Neverland and demonstrates that memories are subjective. Some people want to remember while others prefer to forget. Wendy grew up. She experienced significant trauma, persevered, and saved herself. Now years later, Peter returns and kidnaps Jane, Wendy’s daughter. Unlike years before, Wendy is fully prepared to embrace her role as mother (the very same role demanded of her by Peter). No longer in need of rescue, Wendy is finally ready to face the darkness at the center of the island.
