A Good Read

As an adult who enjoys reading young adult novels, I was drawn to this book due to its subject matter. I tend to shy away from YA that sounds like a love story, or is narrated by a fairy, but I couldn't pass up a Peter Pannish story that was getting good reviews.

Yes, you read that correctly, it is narrated by the famous Tinker Bell. I didn't know that until I started reading, and if I had known it, I probably would not have wanted to read it-- I'm that stubborn. But I'm glad I did! I really like the story of Peter Pan and I enjoy the various adaptations that have made into film. I hadn't read any though.

Jodi Lynn Anderson's Tiger Lily tells the story of the romance between Peter Pan and Tiger Lily. It's well written, nicely paced, and a quick read. I really enjoyed being back in Neverland with the Lost Boys, Peter, Wendy, Smee, Hook, and Tiger Lily. I like the idea of Neverland, and that perhaps each of us is still really a child deep down. It's the magical sense of wonder I'm drawn to.

In short, it's a nicely written teenage love story with a big of high adventure involving crocodiles and pirates. Don't let Tink fool you.

Tiger Lily's story

In spite of being a little annoyed by what seemed to be the unnecessary use of Tinker Bell as a narrator, I enjoyed this book and the different spin that Anderson puts on the story of Peter Pan. Tiger Lily is an intriguing character, and Peter is unlike any Pan I've met yet. The story could have been easily, and perhaps better, served by third-person omniscient narration, but otherwise this a fine addition to the Neverland canon.
