Tiger Lily

Before Peter Pan belonged to Wendy, he belonged to the girl with the crow feather in her hair. . . .

Fifteen-year-old Tiger Lily doesn’t believe in love stories or happy endings. Then she meets the alluring teenage Peter Pan in the forbidden woods of Neverland and immediately falls under his spell.

Peter is unlike anyone she’s ever known. Impetuous and brave, he both scares and enthralls her. As the leader of the Lost Boys, the most fearsome of Neverland’s inhabitants, Peter is an unthinkable match for Tiger Lily. Soon, she is risking everything—her family, her future—to be with him. When she is faced with marriage to a terrible man in her own tribe, she must choose between the life she’s always known and running away to an uncertain future with Peter.

With enemies threatening to tear them apart, the lovers seem doomed. But it’s the arrival of Wendy Darling, an English girl who’s everything Tiger Lily is not, that leads Tiger Lily to discover that the most dangerous enemies can live inside even the most loyal and loving heart.

From the New York Times bestselling author of Peaches comes a magical and bewitching story of the romance between a fearless heroine and the boy who wouldn’t grow up.

 

Before I start this I should tell you, I have a slight Peter Pan obsession. I have no idea why, I just love books that re-tell the story of Peter Pan…

So, that said, this book kills me.  In a good way. I got so attached to Tiger Lily, and when you go through her life with her, you go through her character development with her. This book is told from Tinker Bells point of view (which was awesome) and it helps explain why Tink dislikes Wendy so much. After reading this, I hate Wendy. I was never fond of her, but this novel turned me completely against her. It also mad me mad at Peter as well.  But, still, it changed my opinion of Peter Pan in a good way. It adds wonderful back story to the world of Neverland and I recommend.

I give Tiger Lily 5 out of 5 stars.

 

Aim for the knees,
