4.5 stars.

Emma is an orphan who lives in Grace Field House, an orphanage that also housed 30+ other children. They're look after by a guardian and a mother figure called Mother. Just like any other orphanage, there are times when some of the kids will get adopted and leave but for Emma, her life is content as of right now and she also knows that the other children also feel the same. Not until she stumbles upon a scene where she will question everything about the orphanage.

One thing that popped up in my mind when I read the title is that the story probably inspired by Peter Pan and I was correct! This is a fantasy world where the children in Grace Field House would want to escape the place after the incident that happened one particular night when one of the kid got adopted. So far, I am invested to know more of the world outside the house and how they would craft their jailbreak plan. I think this is a battle of wits between victims and captors that never seen before in manga world!
