“Queer readers such as myself who spent their childhoods escaping into the fantastical worlds of Oz and Neverland will delight in Kelly Ann Jacobson’s Tink and Wendy…An homage to J.M. Barrie’s imagination even as it flips his script. News flash: It’s not all about the boys anymore!” —Julia Watts, author, Quiver and Needlework

“Jacobson breathes new life into traditional Peter Pan lore, shuttling her protagonists between modern-day upstate New York and a Neverland built and managed by fairies. Tink and Wendy is a delight for fans of Peter Pan.” –Tara Campbell, author, Cabinet of Wrath: A Doll Collection

What happens when Tinker Bell is in love with both Peter Pan and Wendy? In this sparkling re-imagining of Peter Pan, Peter and Wendy’s granddaughter Hope Darling finds the reclusive Tinker Bell squatting at the Darling mansion in order to care for the graves of her two lost friends after a love triangle gone awry. As Hope wins the fairy’s trust, Tink tells her the truth about Wendy and Peter―and her own role in their ultimate fate. Told in three alternating perspectives―past, present, and excerpts from a book called Neverland: A History written by Tink’s own fairy godmother―this queer adaptation is for anyone who has ever wondered if there might have been more to the story of Tinker Bell and the rest of the Peter Pan legend.

High Praise for TINK AND WENDY

“A character-driven reimagining of Peter Pan . . . a queer, introspective retelling.” Kirkus Reviews

Tink and Wendy is a masterful reinvention of the classic. Full of teenage angst and yearning, it is poignant, relatable, and full of contemporary appeal.” —Foreword Reviews

“Made me feel the same way I felt when I was little reading the original Peter Pan stories, that sense of something magical, just right out of your reach. Like magic was really possible. . . . 5 stars, more if it was possible.” —My Cat Reads and Reviews

Tink and Wendy isn’t simply a brilliant, queer revision; it’s Peter Pan as I wish it had always been. Readers will adore Tink’s candor and her journey through grief, devotion, and redemption. This legend is enriched by Kelly Ann Jacobson’s talent and wit. Tink and Wendy joins the ranks of Boy, Snow, Bird by Helen Oyeyemi, The Robber Bride by Margaret Atwood, and The Color Master: Stories by Aimee Bender and will become the classic that replaces the classic.” —Melissa Scholes Young, author, The Hive and Flood

“Queer readers such as myself who spent their childhoods escaping into the fantastical worlds of Oz and Neverland will delight in Kelly Ann Jacobson’s Tink and Wendy…News flash: It’s not all about the boys anymore!” —Julia Watts, author, Quiver and Needlework

“Jacobson breathes new life into traditional Peter Pan lore… Tink and Wendy is a delight for fans of Peter Pan.” Tara Campbell, author, Cabinet of Wrath: A Doll Collection

“A queer peter pan retelling (with a love triangle?!) is basically always what I want.” —Paper Fury
