E. Racine about this book: NEVERWORLD is the tale of Samantha, a young girl in search of the mother who abandoned her long ago. In order to find her, she must trust in a man she has just met, Captain Bartholomew Jones and travel to "the other side of the map". Taking her only friend, fourteen-year-old, Charley Neilson, with her, she follows Captain Jones into the woods and in a flash of light, finds herself in the strange and faraway place known as Neverworld. But Neverworld is not the cozy, suburban world Samantha is used to. It is a harsh, primitive land of sailing ships and pirates, of sword fights and monsters.
Overwhelmed at first, Samantha begins to learn the skills necessary to survive in this hostile place. The mysterious buccaneer, Thomas Drake, teaches her the sword while the Nymph, Daphne, trains her in the use of the bow. She will need all their training is she is to live long enough to solve the mystery of her birth and the riddle of who she is. Neverworld is a novel of adventure for children and adults.
