Waiting On Wednesday: Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by 

This is were we get to 'spotlight' books that we're waiting to be released! The ones that we are dying to get our hands on and read into the wee hours of the night ;) 

The minute I saw this title, my heart just started to pitter-patter and I couldn't breathe :)  

by Jodi Lynn Anderson 

"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." 

A Peter Pan re-telling from Tiger Lily's point of view -
we finally get to see her side of the story!!! 

You don't understand how much I adore Peter Pan, the Lost Boys, Neverland,
and even Tinkerbell and Wendy-bird! and let's not forget Hook and his crew ;) 
I have never seen any other story, re-telling, point of view that has ever given Tiger Lily the time of day! I am trying not to set my expectations too high, just in case, but I cannot help it! This should be an amazing read... Thank you, Jodi Lynn Anderson!!!
