One summer morning while Aidan and Sarah are visiting their grandfather, they discover a secret compartment in his battered wooden desk. Inside is a yellowed envelope that contains a piece of very thin, almost translucent, white paper, on which, handwritten in black ink, are a series of seemingly random lines; among them are what appear to be fragments of letters, but not enough to make sense. At the bottom of the page is a verse about Peter Peter and a reference to a real hotel in London.
As it happens, the family is about to embark on a trip to Europe, so the children decide that while in London, they will try to locate the hotel. Through some careful sleuthing, they manage to discover its location, and once inside, they find another clue.
Could the story of Peter Pan and the Lost Boys actually be real? Set in modern times, teenage siblings Aidan and Sarah Cooper are intrigued by an ancient sheaf of papers discovered in their grandfather's old desk that seem indecipherable. But as the kids solve the riddles, they discover that clues to actual starstuff, beginning with a hotel in London, England, where they happen to be on vacation. The pair find themselves on a wild adventure, pursued by evil and charged with keeping Never Land a secret. Part of the bestselling Starcatchers series.
