Shelby and the Lost Boy of Misbegot Island by John Edward Byrd
Imagine a captured African boy who escapes, along with friends, from a slave ship headed to the New World. They try to row their way back to Africa, but land instead on a mysterious and magical island somewhere in the Caribbean where nothing is as it should be…including the natural process of growing up. Inspired by and a re-imagining of “Peter Pan”, this African-American take on a classic story is one of social and historical significance. Available on Amazon.com and all downloads.

I was carried along with this African-American version of the magical original and its poignant history lesson of our common lost heritages ala tv’s “Do You Know Who You Are?”
