15 year old Tiger Lily, proud and fierce, wild and misunderstood, doesn't believe in love stories or happy endings. Then she meets the 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, big-hearted but hard to reach, 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 the haunted, hunted, courageous boy who loves her. When - as a punishment for her rebellious ways - 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.
There are two reasons why I just can't get enough of this book. First of all, those colours on the cover just kill me with gorgeousness. Second, it's Peter Pan! Really! How can you go wrong with that? Tiger Lily sounds like a brilliant twist on a beloved story, and it sounds like one heck of an adventure. There's nothing wrong with a fantasy story if it's done right, and I certainly think this sounds like a breath of fresh air. What do you think, and what are you waiting on this week?
