Straight On Till Morning
Straight On Till Morning: A Twisted Tale | Liz Braswell
47 posts | 23 read | 35 to read
What if Wendy first traveled to Neverland...with Captain Hook? Sixteen-year-old Wendy Darling's life is not what she imagined it would be. The doldrums of an empty house after her brothers have gone to school, the dull parties where everyone thinks she talks too much, and the fact that her parents have decided to send her away to Ireland as a governessit all makes her wish things could be different. Wendy's only real escape is in writing down tales of Never Land. After nearly meeting her hero, Peter Pan, four years earlier, she still holds on to the childhood hope that his magical home truly exists. She also holds on to his shadow. So when an opportunity to travel to Never Land via pirate ship presents itself, Wendy makes a deal with the devil. But Never Land isn't quite the place she imagined it would be. Unexpected dangers and strange foes pop up at every turn, and a little pixie named Tinker Bell seems less than willing to help. But when Captain Hook reveals some rather permanent and evil plans for Never Land, it's up to the two of them to save Peter Panand his world.

At midnight oh one, a golden glow appeared in her kitchen window.
Upon seeing it, Wendy‘s face also glowed.
“Tinker Bell!” she sighed, and opened the door.

Straight on Till Morning is a reimagining of the Disney movie Peter Pan. It is set four years after Peter Pan's initial visit to the Darling house and, in fleeing from the family dog Nana, not only left behind the children but also his shadow in the possession of the eldest Darling child, Wendy.

I‘ve finished this book a few days ago. I am wondering why I liked Peter Pan so much… this book was about self discovery for our young Wendy Darling, and yet there were so many times i wanted to stop reading because I felt not to have invested into the story. And, I guess that is how it is with these Twisted Tales. I hope ‘Almost There‘ is a lot better.

I‘m not sure how I feel about this book. I now read half of it. The premise was interesting, but it‘s barely keeping my attention. This is the second book in this series that I‘ve read, and I‘m willing to finish it.

Not quite “sitting on a chaise longue sunbathing and reading,” but sitting in the van with the windows down and shoes off reading during dance class is surely something? ☀️🌳📚🚗

Started the tagged book last night and saw this amazing rainbow this afternoon. Think it leads to Never Land? 🤔

I made these #Tinkerbell bookmarks as part of the favors for a baby shower I'm co-hosting. I love getting to have extra fun with our book club ladies!

This month, our bookclub is celebrating one of our members with a Peter Pan baby shower and this Twisted Tale. I thought I'd spend the morning with homemade banana muffins, chai, and some reading. April Fools to me, my four year old was only patient enough to let me bake the muffins, no reading allowed. Joke's on her though, I'll be putting her to bed early now. 😂

A reimagining of Peter Pan where Wendy hitches a ride to Neverland with Hook so she can find Peter and save Neverland. My problem with this book was that Wendy was your typical YA heroine: low self-esteem, constantly doubting herself, trying to please everyone at her own expense, focused on the boy, etc. but turned up to the max.

Nope, this one just wasn‘t for me.
I listen to the audio book, and if it wasn‘t for that I would have dnf it a long time ago.

Every single character grated my nerves and I just wanted to shake them half the time and told them to grow-up. I guess it being Peter Pan and all, it‘s kind of ironic. But really, it was too much for me!

rubyslippersreads You panned Pan! 🤣 I was planning to read this too, but maybe not ... 3y
Enchanted_Bibliophile @rubyslippersreads 😂 I didn't even realise. The lack of Pan might have something to do with me not liking this one much. But if you are a Wendy fan you might want to give it a try? 3y
rubyslippersreads @Enchanted_Bibliophile Actually, I do like Wendy, so maybe I will. 3y

This was fun to read. I always enjoy reading the Twisted Tales series. It was interesting to see Wendy as the hero of the story. It was a cute little story overall. It reminded me of how important it is to make a difference in the world. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I love the Twisted Tales series but I just couldn‘t get into this one. I read about 150 pages and just couldn‘t see making myself read another 300 and some pages.

This book gave me BINGO BLACKOUT!!!! Thanks @TheAromaofBooks of books for putting this together. I read so many great books that would have probably sat on my bookshelves for who knows how long. This was my first month but it won‘t be my last!

I have loved all of the Twisted Tales books I‘ve read so far. And this is definitely one of my favorites. Definitely recommend and worth a re-read. Rating: 5 ⭐️

I am using the tagged book for the Daring prompt for @ravenlee 's #covid19challenge

ravenlee Good golly! Just a number in the title left, good on you! I disliked the book I thought would be a comfort read, so I‘m rereading an old favorite instead. It put me a little behind, but as there‘s no end in sight I guess I‘m good. 4y
Birdsong28 @ravenlee Yes just the number left now. There is no rush so you aren't behind, you can't complete the challenge if you don't enjoy the book. 📚📖 4y
Suet624 Love this idea but I stink at challenges. 4y

Good. Interesting take on the original story took me a few chapters to get into as it's my first twisted tales and I was thinking about the original story. Even though this is classed as YA I would say this is aimed at an adult audience as there are jokes and some parts that are adult in nature. Recommend for any Disney fans.

I had a soft spot for the pirates, so it was not too surprising that I lost some of my interest when Wendy left them behind - but then, they came back! Hook might actually be my favorite character. I would love a book about him and his crew (as represented in this version of the story) - though Wendy was, obviously, a great heroine.

Book 2 for #24b4Monday . WOW. While I‘ve adored all the books in the Twisted Tales series, (aside from “Once Upon A Dream”), this one is above and beyond. I dare say it is pretty much a psychological, philosophical , & literary analysis of Peter Pan in the form a highly enjoyable adventure fantasy. It also was extremely meta (which I have a weakness for). I also deeply related to this version of Wendy.

BeansPage Very nice 👍 4y

Loving all the references to “The Odyssey” in this. First, mentions of “Rosey-fingered Dawn” and now Calypso and Circe ♥️
