This week’s can’t wait to read selection is
Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson.
Publication Date: July 3rd 2012

Tiger Lily - Harper Collins Children's Books
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.
Synopsis from

A last minute WoW since the publication date is next week. I can’t say exactly what it is that intrigues me about this book. Maybe simply the whole idea of it. I loved Peter Pan when I was younger (even the Disney version) and always wondered about Tiger Lily in the movie because she seemed sort of useless even if you know more about her from the original. I really hope this book adds to her story.

Let’s hear from you what you are waiting on this week.
