Reviews

Praise for Darling Girl
"A compelling and richly imagined twist on an old story, Liz Michalski's Darling Girl captured me on page one and hasn't released me yet. An emotionally gripping demonstration that a mother's love, when tested, can become a force of nature. I will never look at Neverland and its inhabitants the same way again."
--Brunonia Barry, New York Times bestselling author of The Lace Reader

A dark and elegant look at a story we all know well. Liz Michalski takes Peter Pan where all the old stories go, where magic is never without a cost, and pixie dust might be more powerful than you imagine. Fantastic!
--Barbara O'Neal, When We Believed in Mermaids

A captivating question quivers at the center of the engrossing novel, Darling Girl What if Peter Pan isn't just a story? While meeting the Peter Pan you never knew, reading Darling Girl is like falling under the enchanting spell of Liz Michalski prose. As with all true magic, there must be both the seductive darkness and the illuminating light: Michalski masterfully gives us both. Darling Girl introduces us to the Darling family decades away from Wendy and Peter, descendants who are grappling with secrets that protect a family mythology and a boy who will never grow up. With a young girl and her fiercely protective mother at the center of a spellbinding story, Darling Girl is powerful and captivating. Neverland and the reader will never be the same again.
--Patti Callahan, New York Times bestselling author

A dark and dazzling tale. Liz Michalski has used her own magic wand to shed light on the lengths we go to in order to preserve the myth of beauty, the myth of youth, and even the myth of fairytales themselves."
--Sarah Addison Allen, New York Times bestselling author

Darling Girl is a richly written story of what it means to live in the wake of a fairy tale, and the strength and courage it takes to step out of that shadow and find your own story. Full of heartache, sacrifice, and bravery, this is a book that will linger in a reader's thoughts.
--Kat Howard, Alex Award-winning author of An Unkindness of Magicians
