2014 book 101

Lisa Jensen's Alias Hook
Jensen's latest novel focuses on the famous Captain Hook, cursed to live in Neverland, where he has spent the last two hundred years dealing with the malicious Peter Pan and leading his pirates--all former Lost Boys who came back to Neverland. But things suddenly begin to change when, for the first time, an adult woman arrives. This was really an interesting take on the Pan mythology, and I liked the things Jensen had to say about growing up. I would have liked to have gotten a bit more of Hook's backstory, but Stella is so great that I have no major complaints. B+.

A review copy was provided by the publisher. This book will be released in July.
