Tiger Lily
by Jodi Lynn Anderson

hitting shelves July 3rd, 2012 from HarperTeen

description: (from Harper Catalog)

Before Peter Pan belonged to Wendy Darling, he belonged to the girl with the crow feather in her hair....

Fifteen-year-old Tiger Lily, proud and fierce, wild and misunderstood, 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. Bonding over their shared sense of adventure, their competitive nature, and their courageous spirits, the two form an unlikely friendship and an even more unlikely romance. Then Wendy Darlinga girl who is everything Tiger Lily is notarrives on the island, and Tiger Lily discovers how far she is willing to go to keep Peter with her, and in Neverland.

My thoughts: OHHH my gosh----so excited about this one. I love Peter's always been one of my very favorite fairy tales, so when I saw this---a story that focuses on Tiger Lily.. SO excited. By the way, not sure if this is the final cover or not. It's what is currently shown in the Harper catalog, so it's subject to change! :D I do, however, LOVE it. The colors are fantastic.

  4. I just read about this in VOYA. What a creative way to retell the story of Peter Pan. I don't really remember Tiger Lily but then I've watched various film versions and don't think I ever read the book. Hmm. I may need to do that first! Great pick!

  5. Oh My God! I want this right now!!!! It sounds fantastic - I always liked Tiger Lily :D

    Thanks for choosing this as your WoW! Onto the wishlist it goes!

  6. I hadn't seen this one before, but it sounds really interesting. I don't know much about the Peter Pan story, but I'll definitely check this one out :0)

  7. It sounds interesting, but I'm not sure whether I'd be able to read it - there was a girl in school called Lily and somehow many people called her "Tiger Lily" :D And while reading the summary I already had to think of her all the time.
    Great pick though. Thanks for sharing!
