I love books that give more depth to fairy tales, and this was no exception. Tiger Lily is a young native woman who meets Peter Pan and gets swept up into the magic of his existence. He offers her escape from her everyday world, where she is something of an outcast in her village and betrothed to a man she dislikes. Love, adventure, responsibilities, magic, and reality all battle each other in this wonderful coming of age story.— Jenn, Atlanta
“As a big fan of the original Peter Pan, I was initially a little wary of Anderson's retelling, but after only a few sentences I was completely sold! Before Wendy Bird, there was Tiger Lily, a mysterious and wild young woman from one of Neverland's many tribes. She and the infamous Peter share a love story that is beautiful, tenuous, and doomed from the onset. Anderson brings Neverland back to life in a gritty and very real way, and I loved being immersed in that world.”

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.
