Hook Slashes the Competition

Aurora, IL – Friday, May 21, 2010Hook & Jill by Andrea Jones burst onto the literary scene last fall and has been turning heads ever since, winning a Gold Mom's Choice Award earlier this year and now — in just one week — three more awards. Monday, Hook & Jill was named as a finalist in the New Fiction category for Indie Excellence and Tuesday two more rolled in for Best New Fiction and finalist for Best Cover Design from the 2010 International Book Awards. Earlier named a finalist in the USA Book News Best Book competition, this dust jacket will soon be covered completely in gold foil seals announcing these honors.

In this startling new vision of a cultural classic, Wendy intends to live happily ever after with Peter Pan. But Time, like this tale, behaves in a most unsettling way. As Wendy mothers the Lost Boys in Neverland, they thrive on adventure. She struggles to keep her boys safe from the Island's many hazards, but she finds a more subtle threat encroaching from an unexpected quarter…The children are growing up, and only Peter knows the punishment.

Yet in the inky edges of the Island, the tales Wendy tells to the Lost Boys come true. Captain Hook is real, and even the Wonderful boy can’t defend his Wendy against this menace. Hook is a master manipulator, devising vengeance for his maiming. Insidious and seductive, Hook has his reasons for tempting Wendy to grow up. Revenge is only the first.
