It’s not easy being the daughter of Captain Hook.

Twelve-year-old Jocelyn dreams of following in his footsteps – but her grandfather sends her to finishing school instead.
When her father meets his unfortunate end, Jocelyn sails to Neverland to avenge his death. But she hadn’t bargained on ticking crocodiles, lazy pirates and a trouble-making boy called Peter Pan ...

The week before Jocelyn’s grandfather decided to send her away to finishing school was an eventful one, even by her standards. On Monday, the girl’s newest tutor found his pupil unable to do her history lesson.

I truly owe this book to a flu virus. While illness wreaked havoc on me, I tried got buy a few hours sleep on the sofa.  This was accomplished by entertaining my then quite young daughter with DVDs of her favorite Peter Pan movies. Shortly before the end of the last movie I was awakened by a thought: What if Captain Hook had a daughter? 

Perhaps that is what people mean when they talk about a "germ of an idea."
