To the girls with messy hair and thirsty hearts

>> Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Sometimes love means not being able to bear seeing the one you love the way you are, when they’re not what you hoped for them.

So begins a quote I stumbled upon Good Reads reviews of Jodi Lynn Anderson's Tiger Lily. It started as a post I saw on my Facebook feed which said: "For girls with messy hair and thirsty hearts." You could say I was hooked.

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.

I couldn't help but be enthralled --- I wasn't a 'Wendy' type after all. Especially after finding out that Peter Pan's and Tiger Lily's story happened before Wendy Darling --- I knew I had to find myself a copy. And I did!

And if it does live up to its reviews, you know what my next book review will be.
