Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson

Beautiful & heart-breaking: the opening image of Tiger Lily forever watching the shore for Peter’s return. 

I thought this novel was going to be a simple riff on the Peter Pan story. Instead, it is a raw, genuine tale about a girl who fell in love and never recovered. 

If you’ve ever had love and waited too long for its return, then this book will bring back those feelings of hope, betrayal and guilt.

Edit: This novel makes me want to re-read Wide Sargasso Sea (It has a post-colonial lit vibe to it.)
