For children the world over, growing up is an awfully big adventure-but Cristan doesnt want to grow up. Indentured to pay for his passage to the New World, the young Irish lad has no surname, no money, and no property. His sole responsibilities are the ones his master gives him, but when his servitude ends in a years time, Cristans fleeting childhood will rush into an adulthood that expects him to settle and to marry.

The only girl Cristan knows is Wynda, the beautiful daughter of the blacksmith who tells him stories after nightfall with stars in her eyes. The tales enchant Cristan, and even more he dreads the advent of growing old, for to grow old is to forget how to dream. But before the first golden summer can pass into fall, storm and sickness strike the colonists, leaving little food for winter and cholera fevers raging through almost every home.

The manipulative Richard Bosworth seizes charge of the colony, and the children are suddenly faced with all too grownup problems. In ones and twos they flee into the woods, trying to escape starvation and disease. As conditions deteriorate, a sudden revolt against the Governors baleful grasp lands Cristan in a desperate fight for his life, and he finds himself at the wrong end of a knife.

With Bosworths blood on his hands, he too runs away with Wynda into the forest-to the camp of the wild children, where roaring boys and girls romp the dunes, where crowing Indians dance in the firelight, and where legends of mermaids and weeping birds are traded for a tinkers love. But the Governors vengeance burns in the discontented winter, and Cristan finds that growing up wont let him off the hook so easily... A tale about the lost children of Roanoke, Roaring Boys is the riveting new take on the classic story of Peter Pan.
