Mary Kenton doesn’t want to grow up. Nevertheless, her fourteenth birthday is upon her and she seems doomed to a life of boredom and discussions of the weather… until she is visited by Peter Pan. In this prequel to the beloved Barrie tale, Mary visits Neverland to discover a much darker truth than her children will: that perfect isn’t always preferable, expectations can be too high, and that sometimes, growing up happens whether we like it or not.
