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.
Okay, so… I read A LOT of amazing books in August but even so this wasn’t a hard decision. Tiger Lily BY FAR was the best book I’ve read. Even more, Tiger Lily is (so far) the best book I’ve read in 2012. Yeah, it’s that good! The writing was beautiful and the story was heartbreaking but amazing.
Of the other books I’ve read I enjoyed Sweetest Taboo (very recommended!), The Selection (just fab!), Obsidian (Daemon! Daemon!) and Storm (Oh my god!) the most. Sweet Evil was a somewhat disappointing to me but the world in it is very original so, yeah, other people might like it more. Also Fifty Shades of Grey I enjoyed a lot. ;D
