For years, the Jackson family has vacationed at Rowena Wandigaux Lee's old Victorian house on Gull Island, a place of superstition and legend off the southern coast of the U.S.
One particular summer, young Beau follows his cousin Sumter into a hidden shack in the woods - and christens this new clubhouse "Neverland." The rundown shack in the woods is the key to an age-old mystery, a place forbidden to all. But Neverland becomes the place where children begin to worship a creature of shadows, which Sumter calls "Lucy."
When Neverland itself is threatened with destruction, the children's games take on a horrifying reality - and Gull Island becomes a place of unrelenting terror.

WOW! Creeped out for weeks!!!--New favourite!!!
- Sharron "I LOVE haunting, atmospheric writing that plays in your head like a movie. I adore books of a mysterious, suspenseful and creepy nature. I am a big fan of Horror/Zombie/Apocalypse and other genres which center on Mystery and strong character development."
Good story awful performance.
No. His voices were awful. The women especially the grandmother sounded like old men with lung disease and the men reminded me of the "Bug" in the first Men in Black movie. It seemed as if he was talking with a mouth full of food.
I thought the overall concept of the story was good. The grownups were a little too mindless for my taste and the aunt insisting that "her boy" wouldn't do such a thing through the whole story was tedious. I found myself skipping some of the parts about normal family life, like them playing baseball, because I just didn't want to hear the narrator doing so many annoying voices at once. The story is creepy and builds nicely but I would have enjoyed it more as a book.
