Tiger LilyBook - 2012
In this stunning reimagining of J. M. Barrie's beloved classic Peter Pan, New York Times bestselling author Jodi Lynn Anderson expertly weaves a gripping tale of love, loss, and adventure.
Before Peter Pan belonged to Wendy, he belonged to the girl with the crow feather in her hair... Tiger Lily.
When fifteen-year-old Tiger Lily meets the alluring teenage Peter Pan deep in the forbidden woods of Neverland, the two form a bond that's impossible to break, but also impossible to hold on to.
As the leader of the Lost Boys, the most fearsome of Neverland's inhabitants, Peter is an unthinkable match for Tiger Lily. But when Wendy Darling, a girl who is everything Tiger Lily is not, arrives on the island, Tiger Lily discovers how far she is willing to go to keep Peter with her, and in Neverland.
Told from the perspective of tiny, fairy-sized Tinkerbell, Tiger Lily is the breathtaking story of budding romance, letting go, and the pains of growing up.

SummaryAdd a Summary
Tiger Lily is the adopted daughter of Tik Tok, shaman of the Sky Eater tribe of Neverland. As such, she should be a revered member of her community. Instead she is teased and harassed by other children-until one of her tormentors mysteriously dies. After that Tiger Lily is still an outsider, still looked down on, but she is also feared. She grows up wild and alone, running through Neverland's forests, becoming a skilled hunter and tracker. Her only companions are other village misfits, Pine Sap and Moon Eye, and a tiny faerie. Then one day she goes against her village's orders and saves an Englander shipwrecked on Neverland's shores. How was she to know her good deed would lead to heartache, sorrow, and the greatest betrayal she would ever face? Neverland is a dark place in this faerie-narrated tale of Peter Pan's first love. Teens familiar only with Disney's version of the story may find this novel perplexing, but its many layers create a place of dangerous wonder. Tiger Lily has been reinvented with a complex backstory, giving her a credible source of deep strength and dark emotion.
