Tiger Lily by Jodi Anderson

Description (from Goodreads): 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.

My Review:

I first wanted to read this book because I am a huge fan of Jodi Lynn Anderson and her peaches series. Tiger Lily did not disappoint! I loved the fresh take on Peter Pan, it was one of my favorite books as a child, so I had high expectations. I liked that Tinker Bell was the narrator, in the story of Peter Pan you never really get to hear from her, so it was nice to see. Tiger Lily is a perfect retelling for fans of Peter Pan, it is fantastic!

*I received a copy of this book inexchange for an honest review.  Nicole

  1. Sounds like a great read! Love the idea of Tinker Bell as the narrator!


The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
