Title:  Tiger Lily
   Author: Jodi Lynn Anderson
   Release Date: July 3rd, 2012

     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 Stance:

      Tiger Lily came to me from Goodreads, and a fellow blogger wrote a rather great glowing review on how great this book was. And I have to say that from the synopsis, the book sounds great. When I was little I enjoyed fairy tales, I am not sure if that's because I wanted to fly or just be part of their worlds. Either way, this book brings back some great memories and I hope this book lives up to that youthful standard.

     I'm sure we all know who Peter Pan is, if not go Google it. This is the book about Tiger Lily, who Peter Pan dated or whatever, before Wendy appeared. I enjoy this concept and how the book is setup, because not often do you get a look at the beforehand of the famous fairy tale characters. At the same time though, there isn't that many tales about traditional fairy tales that I would say has a unique and inspiring concept.

     Lily seems to be this girl who falls hard for Peter, and while she's so enthralled with him, the book leads to more of a hard heart-break. And I wonder what happens to Lily when Wendy shows up. I am curious to see if there is any animosity between the two, and just what does Peter do to break up with Lily. There is so much curiosity about this heartbreak of a novel, that I have looked at it numerous times and every time I don't pick it up, I end up regretting it.
