The novel is laced with inspirations drawn from the original story. Wendy encounters a dog named Nana, and she briefly stays in an attic bedroom. Other elements are more subtle, like when she finds a fountain in the middle of the park. The fountain has a light that bathes it in a pool of light, a clear reference to the fountain in the story.
The Lost Boys are an interesting portrayal, as is Neverwood. New Lost Boys blend with old ones, and their differing powers make them just as intriguing as Peter. The choice to turn them into an army is clever and refreshing, allowing the story to take a very modern feel while giving appreciative nods to the original. In a particularly touching moment, Wendy reads a story to Tootles, who expresses a desire for Wendy to stay and be his mother.
Tink stands out among the cast of characters. She carries an affinity with technology that is a clear allusion to the source material. One of her tools is a bell that censors when she swears, a clever plot device that allows her to be as profane as a mature character without adding profanity to the narrative.
Collectively the book brings the magic of Neverland into a sharp reality. Although it’s undeniably a children’s book, there are many themes that will resonate with adults. Wendy is seventeen, and the interactions she displays are more mature than traditional portrayals of the character. Other characters are insightful and clever, and each appearance by traditional characters is exciting. In a landscape clogged with mundane, repetitive, fantasy, Lost Girl is a refreshing take on a magical tale.
I did not really like the ending to this book tho. The entire book, the lost boys and Peter and Tink were trying to get Wendy to remember them and Neverland. Not to mention get her to stay in Never wood with them and train her to fight Morphlings just for her to forget all of it?! And honestly it was extremely unexpected but still I got really mad cuz Peter was finally happy and he just lost her, again. I'm nervous that the next book won't be as interesting cuz it'll just be repeating what Wendy learned last time, or be the entire story from Peter's view since it is called Lost Boy. But who knows, Chanda Hahn might blow my mind like she always does❤
Wendy has no memory of her previous life at Neverland, she only knows that she has night terrors and nightmares that she doesn’t understand. She also sees shadows that don’t behave the way that shadows should, though no one else seems to see these things and often believe that she is hallucinating or even a bit crazy. But the truth is that she isn’t crazy or hallucinating. So what is really going on, and why can’t she remember anything of her life from before she met the people who eventually adopted her?
I really enjoyed this story. It was a very unique twist on the Peter Pan story. I loved how all the familiar characters were involved, from Captain Hook and S.Mee to Slightly and all the other lost boys.
I was greatly amused at the role that J.M. Barrie played in the story. I am very glad that I picked this one up to read and will continue on with the rest of the series to find out what will happen next in this retelling. I truly enjoyed the twist that the author took in writing this tale, and how she made it all seem to be something that could take place in the “real” world. Recommended.
So this book is for all you Peter Pan fans, and for all you ladies out there that wished Peter Pan grew up :) This is really an incredible twist to a timeless tale and I loved reading every single second of it. I loved seeing characters that I've read and of course seen on movies come to life in a new way. Each one was familiar, and Ms. Hahn did a great job at keeping those characters true but in today's modern time. If you love a good read with a little fantasy, romance, and suspense you definitely need to read Chanda Hahn's Lost Girl.

In fairness this was one of the better ones, and the author does bring the characters to life.
It draws on Peter Pan in a bizarre way (the Disney version at that, I suspect), with many characters having the same names. Not really sure why, to be honest, and could have been annoying, but wasn't.
I wasnt sure what to expect from this book as i didnt read the description before i bought it but i loved everything about it and as soon as i had finished it i bought lost boy and im loving that book too and once im done with that book im going back through all of this authors books and purchasing them all.
The formatting could have been better and in some places it could have done with a bit more explanation but all in all a good tale.
I can't wait to read the next book.
