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.
From the New York Times bestselling author of Peaches comes a magical and bewitching story of the romance between a fearless heroine and the boy who wouldn't grow up.
There is a perfect moment for reading some books. Well for example you need a whole day ahead of you to completely enjoy this one. It's slow and for me like a ballad. Unfortunately I couldn't afford that but still there is always rereading for that. I'm getting to the story. So here you get something I believe you're all familiar with - Peter Pan. I should tell you that he is probably my fist bookish crush and it's still on. The narrator this time is Tinkerbell. We're here reading about the time before and during captain Hook's visit to Neverland. Before Wendy there was a girl called Tiger Lily who showed us more about Peter and lost boys than we knew. It's beautifully written with imaginable descriptions and lovely events. It was so easy to relate with Tiger Lily, because she is me and I'm her deep down. No matter what she did and even though she did some things I don't approve still that little girl who is growing up in Neverland and trying to find her way in life is all of us. We were all lost in this world and didn't know what we wanted or who should we become. But a lot of times in life you have to make a choice and sometimes you have to let go no matter how it's hard. Only you'll always have memories.
I really enjoyed this story even though it was a bit slow at the beginning. Also the letter broke my heart completely. I can't say goodbye to Neverland cause the piece of my hard will always and forever stay there and I'll go there again and again no matter what.
Rating: 5 glorious stars.
