Book Review: When Fantasy Makes One Question Reality!





Second Star

Alyssa B. Sheinmel



Follow Wendy Darling, yes, that Wendy of Never land fame, but still not quite the same; on an adventure to find her twin brothers Michael and John. They are both surfers that chase the perfect wave and when they take off in pursuit they join the missing list at the local police station.  Recent high school graduate Wendy devotes her summer to find them.


She meets up with the mysterious surfer Pete who has a loose lifestyle without rules except one, stay away from the other side of the cove where Jas lives. Why this rule? He wants the kids to avoid getting hooked on Jas’s drug pixie dust. Wendy has a remarkable summer growing up in ways she didn’t know she could.


When betrayal is revealed, she runs to the one person who shouldn’t help her but does. As a love triangle unfolds, she has to decide who she wants to be. The person she is with one or the person she is with the other or perhaps what she use to be before meeting them both.


Wendy is on a quest, not merely to find her brothers although that is the impetus to lead her on this journey. She is on a quest to find her true self. A discovery of what she is really capable of. Can she fight her fears to become a better person and in the process is she losing her sanity? Will she find her brothers or will she finally succumb to the police’s premise that the brothers are dead? Is she merely imagining the entire adventure in an attempt to deal with her grief of missing Michael and John?


With the twists of her mind, this story will take the reader on a magical ride along Wendy’s voyage of love, discovery and the importance of family.
