Okay, I'll admit it, I've never actually read J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan, so I began reading this only knowing the Disney movie version of the story. This is Tiger Lily's story as told from Tinker Bell's point-of-view and it works marvelously! Folks expecting a nice, neat Disney tale are in for a rude awakening. Anderson doesn't pull any punches in describing the events taking place in Neverland - there is plotting, scheming, violence & prejudice, yet beneath it all is a beautiful story of young Peter Pan and Tiger Lily finding love with one another and shaping the people that they become. Tiger Lily is a unique retelling of a favorite tale that solidly stands on its own. I would definitely recommend this to both high school and adult readers.
