Waiting on Wednesday: Second Star

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that I'm eagerly anticipating.

Second Star by Alyssa B. Sheinmel
Pub. Date: May 13, 2014



Goodreads says, "A twisty story about love, loss, and lies, this contemporary oceanside adventure is tinged with a touch of dark magic as it follows seventeen-year-old Wendy Darling on a search for her missing surfer brothers. Wendy’s journey leads her to a mysterious hidden cove inhabited by a tribe of young renegade surfers, most of them runaways like her brothers. Wendy is instantly drawn to the cove’s charismatic leader, Pete, but her search also points her toward Pete's nemesis, the drug-dealing Jas. Enigmatic, dangerous, and handsome, Jas pulls Wendy in even as she's falling hard for Pete. A radical reinvention of a classic, Second Star is an irresistible summer romance about two young men who have yet to grow up--and the troubled beauty trapped between them."
Peter Pan meets surfing? This is one summertime read I can't wait to get my hands on! What do you guys think?

  4. Oooooo this sounds AWESOME Christina! I just read a Peter Pan retelling recently and was fascinated by the characters, so I'm hoping this book will create in me that same fascination. I love that it's a modernized retelling, the surfing aspect has me super excited:)
