Most people who were children in the 50s and 60s can remember family vacations like the annual trek to the summer Retreat owned by Grammy Weenie (Rowena) always taken in August when the heat was searing and her old Victorian house sweltered for lack of air conditioning...
The Jackson and Monroe families made the trip in their station wagon every year...The adults would drink bourbon and get into arguments with each other and the children would look for adventures away from the melee...Sumpter was their leader. His cousins, Beau (narrator), Nonie and Missy gladly followed to escape the warring adults...
The Retreat was located off the coast of Georgia on a peninsula mistakenly called an island, Gull Island. In August, in addition to the heat, there were giant black flies and stinging jellyfish. There was a decrepit amusement park known as Sea Horse Park with a run-down roller coaster, lopsided carousel and dried up Tunnel-of-Love...
Grammy Weenie was wheel chair bound this trip but she carried her legendary silver-backed all-natural bristle brush which for generations she used on both hair and behinds. According to her, there were two classes of people on the island not to be associated with: Gullahs and Island trash...both groups considered Grammy Weenie to be the lowest...Grammy and her line carried the Wandigaux curse...and they feared her...
For the bored children...there was the shack out in the woods on the bluff which Sumpter christened Neverland. It looked and smelled bad, its window was crusted with dirt, it was full of old tools and paint cans. Cold and crumbly dirt lined its earthen floors and got between bare toes.It was where you ain't supposed to go...
That summer Sumpter held a god hostage in Neverland...a god that needed to eat...a god that demanded sacrifice...
NEVERLAND has been one of my summer go-to books. Every character is well-developed and alive. This is the only book by this author that I've liked...but one of the best books I've ever read. Enjoy!
But it turned into the vacation to remember. And not in a good way. I could imagine being trapped in the middle and feeling I had no options and couldn't depend on my parents to save me. That totally vulnerable feeling that makes you hide your face under the blanket! I will be reading everything I can find penned by Douglas Clegg! I hope the rest are as good as this one.

part of two families, who are thrown together for the summer in an old cottage in a remote holiday location.
The parents spend a lot of their time inside drinking, and not paying much attention to what is going on under their own noses.
The kids, a brother, two sisters and their weirdo bossy cousin, spend their time in Neverland, an old shed, a.k.a. clubhouse where anything seems to be possible, some exciting, some bad, and then, when things get out of hand, totally evil.
One other person, a bitter Grandma has come along for the trip. She knows the tragic history of the location, and deeply suffers from the death of a long lost daughter.
All this combined becomes the wrong place to have fun in the sun.
I hate giving up on books - however, something either grabs you or it doesn't. So, as I was flailing around with it, I came on to check out some of the lower reviews and I can see that, if I'm finding it dull now, it probably won't get any better for me. Such as shame, as I love the idea and part of this were very good in isolation.
