James Hook is a child who only wants to grow up.

When he meets Peter Pan, a boy who loves to pretend and is intent on never becoming a man, James decides he could try being a child—at least briefly. James joins Peter Pan on a holiday to Neverland, a place of adventure created by children’s dreams, but Neverland is not for the faint of heart. Soon James finds himself longing for home, determined that he is destined to be a man. But Peter refuses to take him back, leaving James trapped in a world just beyond the one he loves. A world where children are to never grow up.

But grow up he does.

And thus begins the epic adventure of a Lost Boy and a Pirate.

This story isn’t about Peter Pan; it’s about the boy whose life he stole. It’s about a man in a world that hates men. It’s about the feared Captain James Hook and his passionate quest to kill the Pan, an impossible feat in a magical land where everyone loves Peter Pan.

Except one.

"Better in the Rain" by Brianna Shrum

Here's a fun little behind the scenes thing about NEVER NEVER (and me! ;D) There's a scene in here between James Hook and certain girl he's in love with that's both super sexy and super sad. But it's one of my favorite scenes in the book (it may have been my favorite scene to write altogether) because of the magical ingredient: the rain!

There's something about two people in the rain! I remember being in middle school and having to run through a thunderstorm with boy I was massively in love with (we weren't dating. Yet.) and we both showed up to class very late, soaking wet, and laughing. I thought it was DESPERATELY romantic. I remember always wishing we'd found some way to make out in the rain. I grew up and later made my husband kiss me in the rain once, because while in reality, it was not as comfortable as Noah and Allie made it look in The Notebook, it was something I'd always wanted to do! (And hey, I'm not complaining. ;) )

So that's why that scene is there. I've had a thing for that since I was a young teen--always have, always will. I guess James does too ;D
