Another Pan - Daniel Nayeri, Dina  Nayeri This is what you get when you mix Peter Pan with Secret Society by Tom Dolby . I always enjoy when popular stories are updated and this one didn't disappoint. This is the second in the Another Series (Marlowe School for me), but you don't need to read Another Faust to feel comfortable with this one. Peter is indeed updated to the 21st century to lead a secret gang termed the LB - lost boys. The Egyptian curse added a lot to the typical Peter Pan story. The authors did a great job of creating chemistry between Peter and Wendy, which is what the original story first hinted about. I also enjoyed the texting of "happy thoughts" by the lost boys as a way of modernizing that bit of the tale as well. Overall, a good read.
