OK, you know the story of Peter Pan, right?  Well, have you ever thought why Wendy was so quick to up and leave her comfortable London home and take off with a boy she barely knew?  What would ever make her do that?  Well, this story might answer that question.  It shows 9-year-old Wendy living in a home with emotionally distant parents and an abusive Nanny.  And she has discovered her father cheating on her mother!  Wouldn't you be looking for an adventure too?
