    Thirteen years old Kevin, like most males his age, runs wild with raging hormones. He has a crush on an older woman, fifteen years old Nikki who spends lots of time alone with Kevin, but sees him as a friend, not a
boyfriend. At a local teen hangout, Peter Starling accompanied by his brother Doug and two friends confront Kevin and his closest friends, but though punches are thrown, no one is hurt.

    Just when he finds the courage to confess to Nikki he loves her, she informs him that she is involved with Peter. Kevun tries to become friendly with Peter so he remain near his beloved, but begins observing behavior impossible for humans to perform. However, when he sees Peter, his cohorts and Nikki fly to the "second star to the right and straight on until morning", Kevin and company follows though he cannot believe that he is about to begin a fantastic adventure in Neverland.

    The mortal characters are young, but possess the courage of a hardened warrior and the wisdom of an Ancient One. Christopher Golden has written a horror novel with appeal to young adults, though older reader will enjoy it
too. This urban fantasy is a clever twist on Peter Pan that hooks the audience from STRAIGHT ON TIL DAWN.
