Clean Teen Publishing

Summary from Goodreads:

Magic can do a lot—give you flight, show you mermaids, help you taste the stars, and… solve the budget crisis? That's what the grown-ups will do with it if they ever make it to Neverland to steal its magic and bring their children home.
However, Gwen doesn't know this. She's just a sixteen-year-old girl with a place on the debate team and a powerful crush on Jay, the soon-to-be homecoming king. She doesn't know her little sister could actually run away with Peter Pan, or that she might have to chase after her to bring her home safe. Gwen will find out though—and when she does, she'll discover she's in the middle of a looming war between Neverland and reality.
She'll be out of place as a teenager in Neverland, but she won't be the only one. Peter Pan's constant treks back to the mainland have slowly aged him into adolescence as well. Soon, Gwen will have to decide whether she's going to join impish, playful Peter in his fight for eternal youth… or if she's going to scramble back to reality in time for the homecoming dance.

Why Peter Thinks You Should Read This Book
There's a book about me, and you should read it! I'm g
oing to read it, just to find out what happens. I
was in it, but I forgot what happens. (You ought not
judge me
you'd forget your adventures, too, if
you had as many as I do.)
It's about a silly girl who thinks too much and neve
r wants to have any fun. Except for when there's
already fun. So it's more like the fun has her, than
she has the fun, I guess. She's weird, and half-way
grown up, but I like her anyways... and if I like her,
you can be sure you will like her. I'm very picky.
Not that I liked her straight away, mind you. The onl
y reason we even met is because she's got a
brilliant little sister who has an imagination as th
ick and rich as maple syrup up in her head. She took
flying right away. If she hadn't been so good at bein
g a kid, I wouldn't have trusted her when she told
me her sister was just a big kid who really did belong
in Neverland with the rest of us. I'm glad I
listened, because now we have a proper storyteller on
the island with us.
You should read this book because there is a dastardl
y crocodile in it, and some even more dastardly
mermaids. There's the biggest pirate ship to ever haun
t the shore of Neverland, and a bunch of the best
lost boys and girls that have ever run the ropes and f
lown the forests. There's a great bit about a
bombing and the excitement of adventure at wartime,
and a lot of other little bits that I can't tell you
about yet.
The whole thing is really just a fantastic adventure,
at least once you get through the boring beginning
part. The very beginning doesn't have me in it, so I
apologize for how painfully dull it might be to jus
read about a girl who goes to school and has friends
and is trying to figure out how to grow up. I
promise there'll be fighting and betrayal, triumph and
tragedy, and all the stuff that makes for a great
ory. Someone might even die. I forget.
Really, you should just read this book because I told
you to and you ought to trust me. If you don't like
me enough to trust me, you're probably the sort of sad
grownup who wouldn't like it anyways. If you're
already all grownup inside and outside and sideways t
oo, you can forget everything I just said. As for
the rest of you though: I'll see you in Neverlan
