A bold and beautiful retelling of the Peter Pan story.
Lambda Literary Award finalist
Sassafras Lowrey's gorgeously subversive queer punk novel reimagines the classic Peter Pan story. Prepare to be swept overboard into a world of orphaned, abandoned, and runaway bois who have sworn allegiance and service to Pan, the fearless leader of Neverland, and to the newly corrupted Mommy Wendi.
Pan's best boi Tootles narrates this tale of the lost bois who call the Neverland squat home, creating their own idea of family, united in their allegiance to Pan, the boi who cannot be broken, and in their refusal to join ranks with Hook and the leather Pirates. Like a fever-pitched dream, Lost Boi situates a children's fantasy within a transgressive alternative reality, chronicling the lost bois' search for belonging and purpose, and their struggle against the biggest foe of all: growing up.
