One of the best books I have read!!! Probably the best EVER. Impossible to put down I was in love with Peter and was imagining myself in tiger lily's shoes on every page. I felt her pain and I cried in the end though, and I have to keep reminding myself that the book is really over. I'm definitely re-reading!!
(Even though I'm still mad about the end of the book)

The narrator's voice was way to american, even when they were specifically talking about Englanders. The book fell short of my expectations.

Tiger Lily is the adopted daughter of Tik Tok, shaman of the Sky Eater tribe of Neverland. As such, she should be a revered member of her community. Instead she is teased and harassed by other children-until one of her tormentors mysteriously dies. After that Tiger Lily is still an outsider, still looked down on, but she is also feared. She grows up wild and alone, running through Neverland's forests, becoming a skilled hunter and tracker. Her only companions are other village misfits, Pine Sap and Moon Eye, and a tiny faerie. Then one day she goes against her village's orders and saves an Englander shipwrecked on Neverland's shores. How was she to know her good deed would lead to heartache, sorrow, and the greatest betrayal she would ever face? Neverland is a dark place in this faerie-narrated tale of Peter Pan's first love. Teens familiar only with Disney's version of the story may find this novel perplexing, but its many layers create a place of dangerous wonder. Tiger Lily has been reinvented with a complex backstory, giving her a credible source of deep strength and dark emotion.

This was one of the most beautiful books I've ever read. The words, the descriptions, the flow. I loved, loved, LOVED it. It's interesting the way Anderson took the point of view of Tiger Lily, instead of Peter Pan, Lost Boys, or Wendy. I almost cried about stupid Peter's betrayal. What a beautiful book.

This book was amazing. It changes the way you think about Peter Pan and Wendy.

Haunting, beautiful and heartbreaking. This book is a masterpiece in itself.

I really enjoyed this book. It was not a grab-you-by-the-throat suspense type story, but it was a good, clean story and a fun ride. I thought the ending was quite nice. It proves out that sometimes what a person needs is better than what they think they want. A charming read!

Overall I loved the book. It just wasn't what I was expecting, which is hardly the books fault (although perhaps somewhat the marketing people's fault). I honestly believe this book is marketed to the wrong crowd, and I would have picked it up much sooner had I realized this. I thought the depth of characters, especially with a darkness not found (to my memory) in Peter Pan, was fantastically well done. The slow pacing of the book might not be for everyone, but again I think that is also fixed as people become aware that this book is not geared towards the people it is marketed for. The main reason I am not giving it an A+ is because I still have mixed feelings on using Tinkerbell as the narrator. While it gives the reader a larger yet more personal scope than using only third or first POV, it can be jarring at times, as well as the marketing issue (I know I am harping on this, but I think it is important that people come to this book without the preconceived notions I came to it with), but Anderson's characters more than make up for it. For the full review, head to my blog at OboeChica Books (so long and thanks for all the fish)

"Many authors have retold, reframed, or continued the story of Peter Pan, the Lost Boys, and Wendy, but few have spun the story of Tiger Lily, the fierce, misfit girl whose love Peter ultimately rejected. In this dark, edgy tale "infused with regret, loneliness, and lost love" (Booklist), Tinkerbell narrates Tiger Lily's side of things and gives new perspectives on familiar characters like Hook, Smee, and even Peter. Heady and atmospheric, this novel by the author of the Peaches trilogy will entrance readers who enjoy sophisticated, multi-layered storytelling."

Set in Neverland before the Darling children arrive, this details the story of Tiger Lily, who is Peter Pan’s first love. (That’s why I picked it up.) What follows is a somewhat interesting narrative with characters who are interesting and atypical but very flat, interwoven with a morality tale that has nothing whatsoever to do with the main plot or with Barrie’s original work. (And I would say that if it didn’t deal with such a controversial subject.) The concept was an interesting one, but—I’d give this book a pass.
