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.
And I never expected that you could have a broken heart and love with it too, so much that it doesn’t seem broken at all.
I could have been stronger. I wasn’t enough to keep something so important.
Oh, Tiger Lily.
I’ve been eyeing the gorgeous book cover since it was released. And I when finished reading, I was not surprised that the story inside was far more gorgeous than the cover let on. I marveled at the exquisite story of Tiger Lily and Peter Pan. It was bittersweet. It got me despaired and near tears. It led me to believe that,
Every kind of love, it seems, is the only one. It doesn’t happen twice.
*eyes brimming with tears*
Anderson wrote so beautifully. While reading, I felt haunted and tortured. I was simply enchanted. But hey, this is not a happy story. So yeah, I am not deluded.
Peter‘s character is stunning. I’d never expected he will be depicted like that. So good. =) Tiger Lily‘s is the same. and how I love her.
“Maybe I just love some of you. Maybe not enough.” Tiger Lily blinked at him, and she didn’t understand how anyone could only love a part. Her greedy heart didn’t work out that way.
Tiger Lily is a quick read. I became attached to Neverland, Pine Sap, Moon Eye, the Lost Boys. even Smee!
Forget the fairy tale. Anderson’s version might just be the real thing. And as much as the ending broke, broke my heart, I wouldn’t want it in any other way. *sniffs*
Having someone who is constant isn’t such a bad thing. In fact, in can be rare.
