As The Wendy‘s sequel was released this month and since I haven’t managed to get around to writing a review–I’ve been working on it, just crazy busy–I’ve decided that it’s time to throwback again to the first time I ever wrote a review for this series. The Wendy was my first ever physical ARC and it’s also an utterly brilliant Peter Pan retelling that I frankly think everyone should read. If you’ve not heard of it or not given it a chance just yet, I highly suggest that you do!

But also add it on Goodreads cause it’s amazing.
When the world doesn't want you to be who you are, you must become more yourself than you knew you could be. London. 1789. More than anything in the world, Wendy Darling wants to be the captain of a ship, but women aren't allowed in the Royal Navy. When she learns the Home Office is accepting a handful of women into its ranks, she jumps at the chance, joining the fight against the most formidable threat England has ever faced. Magic. But the secret service isn't exactly what she hoped. Accompanied by a reimagined cast of the original Peter Pan, Wendy soon discovers that her dreams are as far away as ever, that choosing sides isn't as simple as she thought, and that the only man who isn't blinded by her gender might be the worst friend anyone could ask for. Anyone, that is, except Wendy Darling.
