If you liked "Peter and The Starcatchers"...

I also enjoyed Peter and the Starcatchers. It was a fun read that included both adventure and magic.

As you probably know, the authors intended Peter and the Starcatchers as a prequel to the classic Peter Pan by JM Barrie. In the original story, Wendy, John, and Michael Darling (the children of a grownup Molly) follow Peter Pan, the boy who never grows up, to a world where fairies live and children can fly. But beware -- danger abounds in this magical
land of mermaids, Indians, and fairy dust. Captain Hook (Black Stache) and his pirate crew want all children to walk the plank, especially Peter Pan.

Some other adventure books that you might enjoy include:

Journey to the River Sea by Eva Ibbotson

involving a young Indian boy, a homesick child actor, and a missing inheritance that Maia lands in the middle of the Amazon adventure she's dreamed of.

Hatchet by Gary Paulsen

Teetoncey (Cape Hatteras Trilogy) by Theodore Taylor
The Outer Banks of North Carolina are sometimes called "the graveyard of the Atlantic." In 1898, a girl washed up on the beach in the middle of a terrible storm. Nobody knew where she came from. Nobody knew who she was. That night, she was taken in by the O'Neal family, a boy named Ben and his mother Rachel, who tell the story about the girl they named
Teetoncey, as if she was their own.

Happy Reading!
