I would recommend that if you are looking for the best book in the Twisted Tales series, I would recommend Reflection by Elizabeth Lim. For me it is the best book in the whole series and does a good job investing in Chinese mythology and combining the film with the movies seamlessly.
As for the story, it has been a long time since I last read/watched the story of Peter Pan. This is definitely different as Wendy first goes to Neverland on Captain Hook's ship. She buys passage by giving Hook Peter Pan's shadow. And then spends the rest of the book trying to get it back and stop Hook from destroying Neverland. We do not meet Peter until the last 25% of the book (page 362!!!) so most of it is about Wendy and Tinker Bell. The ending is anticlimactic and left me unsatisfied. It ends with Wendy's return to London and the last chapter reads like a biography rather than a great end to a story that makes you sad it is over.
In this story, Wendy gets to Neverland but she doesn’t get there with Peter Pan. In fact, she catches his shadow and holds on to it for years and years but he never comes back to get it. So, sixteen year old Wendy is living a rather dull life. She looked after her brothers but now they are both off to school and Wendy isn’t doing so well when it comes to socializing and making friends.
One day, her parents find her diary and decide that it’s time for her to get shipped off to Ireland to be a governess to a bunch of children. Needless to say, Wendy is not happy.
When the opportunity strikes and Wendy actually gets the chance to travel straight to Neverland she jumps at it. Thing is, it’s not Peter who comes, it’s a pirate ship and she winds up making a deal she probably should have thought through better.
Captain Hook is up to no good and now Wendy may just have to team up with an unlikely ally to save the whole of Neverland.
This book was alright. I’ll confess right off the bat that even though I liked Peter Pan I’ve always found it to be a tad boring. That said, I also found this book to be a tad boring. Most of the main players were here that you’d expect to see in a book that takes on Neverland but it was just lagging a bit here and there, just enough to get a little too boring.
That said, it’s still not a bad story. It’s fun seeing where the book went when the story was changed around. I found it interesting seeing the twist and the way all of Neverland had to bend and fold to find a way to fit into the new theories being laid out in this whole new tale.
If you’ve read the others you should enjoy this one well enough. If not, you may want to read some of the others but since you really don’t have to read them in any order you can jump in whenever and wherever you want to.

Es un libro muy bueno para todo fan de Disney y de estas historias alternas. En especial me gustó la manera de abordar la relación de Tink y Wendy pues en las películas nunca hablan de eso y siempre se muestran como molestas entre ellas. Entre los personajes no dejan de faltar los Niños Perdidos, los piratas y las sirenas, que siempre le juegan bromas pesadas a Wendy.
Lo que si es que tiene un liguero error de impresión que realmente no afecta tanto, si parece parte del diseño del libro.
