Tara’s May Recommendation

Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson

Tiger Lily“Let me tell you something straight off. This is a love story, but not like any you’ve ever heard. The boy and the girl are far from innocent. Dear lives are lost. And good doesn’t win. In some places, there is something ultimately good about endings. In Neverland, that is not the case.”

This is how bestselling author, Jodi Lynn Anderson, begins her recent novel Tiger Lily. In this precursor to the well-known story of Peter Pan, Anderson paints a tale of unrequited love, heartbreak, and romantic tension. Narrated by Tinker Bell, we learn the backstory of Neverland, and that before Peter belonged to Wendy, he belonged to a girl with a crow feather in her hair. He belonged to Tiger Lily.
