A twisty story about love, loss, and lies, this contemporary oceanside adventure is tinged with a touch of dark magic as it follows seventeen-year-old Wendy Darling on a search for her missing surfer brothers. Wendy’s journey leads her to a mysterious hidden cove inhabited by a tribe of young renegade surfers, most of them runaways like her brothers. Wendy is instantly drawn to the cove’s charismatic leader, Pete, but her search also points her toward Pete's nemesis, the drug-dealing Jas. Enigmatic, dangerous, and handsome, Jas pulls Wendy in even as she's falling hard for Pete. A radical reinvention of a classic, Second Star is an irresistible summer romance about two young men who have yet to grow up--and the troubled beauty trapped between them.

3.5 Book 41/100: Second Star by Alyssa B. Sheinmiel
There were so many things I really liked about this book. I loved the idea of the Peter Pan story being retold with the lost boys as a group of runaways hiding out in abandoned houses on the coast of California with surfing standing in for "flying." And this setting was so incredibly vivid -- the st...

3.0 Second Star
Second Star is a VERY different spin of the classic Peter Pan. I say very different because it has very few similarities to the Actual Peter Pan story. So if you are looking for a Young Adult retelling of Peter Pan that has tons of similarities, this book is not it. Wendy Darling is a 17 year old hi...

”Some of us have only ever found home when we’re on water. Some of us are always waiting for the next wave.” My face was in a perpetual state of a frown while reading this book that I feel like sending the Botox bill to the publishers. Seventeen year-old Wendy Darling has a bright future ahead of he...
