Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson

Summary: Tinkerbell narrates the magical, bittersweet love story between Tiger Lily and Peter Pan. Tiger Lily has never been truly accepted by her tribe, and now the elders have decreed marriage to a man she doesn’t love. She spends more and more time alone in the woods, where she meets wild, fearless Peter Pan, leader of the Lost Boys.

Tiger Lily is intoxicated by the freedom she feels with Peter, and falls under his spell. Their love is all-consuming, and she risks everything to be with him.

Then Wendy Darling arrives in Neverland.

When I initially picked up this book, I worried about the portrayal of Wendy Darling. I thought, “Oh Lord, if this is setting it up to be a whole ‘the tomboy girl is better than the feminine silly girl’ thing, I’m going to be upset.”

Clearly I should have been more concerned about the portrayal of Natives.
