Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson

Tiger LilyTo be completely honest, I chose to read this book last summer because it counted for a square on the Adult Summer Reading BINGO card!  (It was a gardening theme, and the book had the name of a flower in the title.)  The fact that I didn’t get around to reviewing this book until now, nevertheless, is not any indication of the quality of the story.  I am just *very* bad at reviewing books as soon as I finish them.  I have such a back-log to get through that I often play “eeny, meeny, miny, moe” to pick which one to do!  🙂

Though this book tells the story of a 15-year-old girl named Tiger Lily, it is actually narrated by a fairy named Tinkerbell.   [Yes, the same Tinkerbell you’ve heard of before!]  Tiger Lily, a native girl who has always lived as an outcast of sorts within her tribe, is desperate to find a way out of marrying a horrid man to whom she has been betrothed.  Tiger Lily spends time in the woods to avoid her tribe and to try to escape her life, if only for short periods of time, and ends up running into Peter Pan and the Lost Boys.  Not only does she fall for Peter, fully knowing she can’t actually make a life with him, but then Wendy Darling shows up in Neverland…  If you aren’t don’t get your heart broken at least once by the end of this story, you don’t have a heart.

Happy Reading!
