Waiting on Wednesday: Tiger Lily

Wednesday, March 28, 2012

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine, and specifically spotlights upcoming novels we can't wait to read. As always, there are some amazing upcoming books, but this week I'm particularly excited for...

Title: Tiger Lily
Author: Jodi Lynn Anderson
Publisher: Harper Collins
Publish Date: July 3, 2012
Genre: YA, Fantasy
Pages: 304
15 year old Tiger Lily, proud and fierce, wild and misunderstood, doesn't believe in love stories or happy endings. Then she meets the 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, big-hearted but hard to reach, 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 the haunted, hunted, courageous boy who loves her. When - as a punishment for her rebellious ways - 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.
There are two reasons why I just can't get enough of this book. First of all, those colours on the cover just kill me with gorgeousness. Second, it's Peter Pan! Really! How can you go wrong with that? Tiger Lily sounds like a brilliant twist on a beloved story, and it sounds like one heck of an adventure. There's nothing wrong with a fantasy story if it's done right, and I certainly think this sounds like a breath of fresh air. What do you think, and what are you waiting on this week?

  5. Oh, this one is at the very top of my wishlist and has been since even before that amazing cover came out. I can't wait to hear once of my favorite fairy tales retold in Tiger Lily's voice! That cover,...I seriously need a poster of it to hang on my wall.
