WHERE THE LOST CHILDREN PLAY

by Hannah Lee Defrates

Willow and Poppy live in a society where Order is chaos, but they have found a constant- an empty stairwell they’ve claimed as their own secret Neverland. Appointing themselves Peter and Wendy, they vow to protect the Fourth Floor’s children (Chrys, Daff, and Violet) from the sinister truths of the world they live in. But when the shadows of their dystopian reality begin to seep into their haven, these “lost children” must learn how to hold onto the light and- more importantly- each other.

Snapshots in a stairwell.

With a window. I was drawn in straight away. DeFrates weaves a magical world in which time is passing yet standing still. “Merde… And this was good.” Brava!
