Waiting on Wednesday (117)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and it is a way to show off the books you can't wait to be released!!

This week I chose:

"Tiger Lily"

by Jodi Lynn Anderson
Harper Teen
Release Date: July 3, 2012

The following description is from goodreads.com:

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

A retelling based on Peter Pan? I definitely must read this! And how great to explore a character like Tiger Lily! I can't believe I only found out about this book in the last week!

What are you waiting for this week???

This is on my TBR, it does sound like it could be fantastic doesn't it? And I haven't read the book but I liked Tiger Lily in both the Disney animated movie and the live action movie so hopefully she rocks out in this book.
