Lost in the Never Woods by Aidan Thomas

A Peter Pan retelling but told in our current timeline with cell phones, tvs and security cameras. 
It’s years after Wendy is found in the woods and Peter and Michael never returned. Peter turns up just as more kids are starting to be taken mysteriously. Wendy and Peter try to figure out why and how to get his shadow back which they think might be the culprit. 
I do love a retelling. 
May be spoilery:I like that Peter Pan was a ferrier of souls. The young souls that move on but have had a much more traumatizing end go to Neverland with him to heal before they move on.I will tell  you I had chills for the last half of the book. I always wondered about the lost boys but to think of them as souls that were being protected is different than stolen or lost children. I felt so bad for Wendy and the Darlings and all that she had blocked her whole childhood because she had witnessed something that was so horrible. There was a forbidden romance dynamic with Peter and Wendy which was causing issues with Neverland and the shadow.

Synopsis:

When children go missing in the small coastal town of Astoria, people look to Wendy for answers.

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 light. Attempting to flee her past, Wendy almost runs over an unconscious boy lying in the middle of the road, and gets pulled into the mystery haunting the town.

Peter, a boy she thought lived only in her stories, claims that if they don’t do something, the missing children will meet the same fate as her brothers. In order to find them and rescue the missing kids, Wendy must confront what’s waiting for her in the woods.
