Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson

Tuesday, May 22, 2012

Synopsis: 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.

Review: Before beginning this book I must admit I was all about Wendy, but by the time I finished reading it, I realized it's ALL about Tiger Lily. She's brave, fierce and loyal to the ones she loves and above all, especially to her Shaman father Tick Tok. At first I wasn't sure if I would like this book because it's told in the point of view of Tinker Bell and I'm so accustomed to reading from the main characters POV, but as I read on I was surprisingly entertained with the story told from Tink's view. It worked perfect because it lets readers in on what's really going on with each character. There were so many things about this book that made it hard for me to put down. I loved Tiger Lily's spirit and her quiet strength and although at times I just wanted her to confess her love for Peter out loud, I understood why she didn't. I also really loved seeing the other side of Pan. I couldn't help but have a fixed image of Pan flying around in green tights, but I was happy that Jodi Lynn Anderson really took the time to re-imagine Peter and gave him a unique personality. Anderson did a marvelous job bringing to life the love story between Peter and Tiger Lily. Even the characters I knew I should've hated, I found fascinating. Tiger Lily's story is a unique love story filled with several heart-wrenching moments and the end left me with a bittersweet feeling. I don't think I can ever think of The Lost Boys, Tinker Bell, Peter Pan, Wendy and Tiger Lily in the same way ever again. Overall, I thought this book was incredibly well written and so worth the read. I wish I could sit and analyze each detail of the story because there were so many great ones. I definitely recommend picking this one up!
