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.
- I have always loved Neverland and this story really brought a whole new Neverland to life. Along with Peter, the Lost Boys and the pirates on the island, there are also tribes.
- Tiger Lily was a fierce character. I haven’t wanted the movie for a while, but she seems so meek. In the story Tiger Lily is strong, independent and doesn’t care what people think of her. She is also dedicated to being loyal to her adopted father and still trying to be a good person within her tribe.
- I liked Peter, he was mystical, but still struggling with growing up or staying a child. He was responsible for the Lost Boys and you could see that wears on him.
- Wendy wasn’t the heroine in this story. I have always loved her in the movie, but her character took on a completely different role.
- Tinker Bell narrated the story which gave a unique spin.
- The writing was well done, there were some amazing metaphors and quotes.
- The plot was a little ho-hum. I didn’t really get excited about the book until the last ¼ when things started to pick up. It was a little dry in the beginning.
- The ending was not what I expected, not that it made the book bad, but it definitely was different that the typical “Disney” ending you are expecting.
- With Tinker Bell narrating the story, she was switching POVs and sometimes I got confused that Tink was talking about herself rather than Tiger Lily. I had to change my focus when Tink started to narrate for herself.
