The Wendy has completely altered my unfavourableview of retellings. Erin Michelle Sky and Steven Brown successfully capture the essence of the original Peter Pan characters, even while presenting them in entirely different circumstances. Wendy may be somewhat edgier, but not in any way that seems contrary to her personality in canon. This alone would be cause to consider The Wendy a triumph, as it is the major pitfall of a re-imagined story. Sky and Brown's narrative voice is engaging, evocative, and delightfully witty. The third person omniscient POV can easily confuse a reader, but The Wendy is a prime example of how effective it can be when done well. Sky and Brown interlace a subtle commentary on the misogyny of the era with an exciting plot that forces Wendy to make difficult decisions at every turn. From page one right up to the end, The Wendy held me enthralled. I can't wait for the next instalment of this marvellous re-imagined version of Peter Pan.
