Review

The Wendy is a captivating and charming re-imagining of Peter Pan. Wendy Darling hasn't got a mother. She and hundreds of other babies appeared overnight on the doorsteps of almshouses across London. As she grows up, she decides that she wants to captain her own ship. A fortunate meeting with a former slave presents Wendy with the opportunity to learn all the skills she needs, but the 1780s make for an inhospitable climate for Wendy's goal. The Royal Navy won't employ a woman but, surprisingly, the Home Office will. Only women and dogs can sense the magic of the everlost, the winged men who harass England's shores. And so Wendy is employed as the diviner for the Fourteenth Platoon of the Nineteenth Light Dragoons stationed in Dover. One evening she, Michael, and John are working when both Wendy and Nana, the Newfoundland, smell magic.

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.

When the world doesn't want
you to be who you are,
you must become more yourself
than you knew you could be.
