The Bridge to Never Land - Dave Barry, Ridley Pearson This book is a far cry from the others in the series. Don't get me wrong it's still very good but it just doesn't have that zip or snap the other contain. It introduces three new characters Aidan and Sarah Cooper (who find the first clue to the Starcatchers) and J.D. Aster (a descendant of Molly Aster and a physicist to help with all those pesky quantum physics issues). Though Aidan and Sarah are 15 and 17 respectively, and J.D. is in his mid twenties, they all act much younger - almost immature. The conclusion confirms that another book is in the offing and this one was merely a setup for future adventures. Given the whole Peter Pan thing, this book is almost too modern to mesh into the whole Starcatcher theme.

All in all I enjoyed the book but it wasn't as good as I expected. Peter didn't even show up until over three quarters of the way through and he was such a jerk I wanted to slap him. I really liked the Mollusks and hope they return in book six.
