Unhooked
Author: Lisa Maxwell
Summary: For as long as she can remember, Gwendolyn Allister has never had a place to call home.  Her mother believes they are being hunted by brutal monsters, and those delusions have brought them to London.  Gwen's only saving grace is that her best friend, Olivia, is with her for the summer.

But shortly after their arrival, the girls are kidnapped by shadowy creatures and dragged to a world of flesh-eating sea hags and dangerous Fey.  And Gwen begins to realize that maybe her mother isn't so crazy after all...

Gwen discovers that this new world she inhabits is called Neverland, but it's nothing like the Neverland you've heard about in stories.  Here, good and evil lose their meaning and memories slip like water through your fingers.  As Gwen struggles to remember where she came from and tries to find a way home, she must choose between trusting the charming fairy-tale hero who says all the right things and the captivating pirate who promises to keep her safe.

Caught in the ultimate battle between good and evil, with time running out and her enemies closing in, Gwen is forced to finally face the truths she's been hiding from all along.  But can she save Neverland without losing herself?

Be sure to checkout this title from your Abilene Public Library and come out ready to discuss it with other avid teen readers.  Again, the Twisted Tales Book Club will meet on Monday, September 26 at 4:30PM...get in on the reading fun!
