Tiger Lily and The Curse Workers

Through all of the fantastic blogs I follow I have been introduced to 
numerous books that I want to read, and a lot that I have read. 
This book however, I am almost certain I could not have heard 
about if not for this blog....

Tiger Lily
By: Jodi Lynn Anderson
Publication date: July 3, 2012 (not soon enough)

Before Peter Pan belonged to Wendy Darling, 
he belonged to the girl with the crow feather in her hair....

Fifteen-year-old Tiger Lily, proud and fierce, wild and misunderstood, 
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. Bonding over their shared sense of 
adventure, their competitive nature, and their courageous spirits, 
the two form an unlikely friendship and an even more unlikely romance. 
Then Wendy Darling—a girl who is everything Tiger Lily is not—arrives 
on the island, and Tiger Lily discovers how far she is willing to go to keep
Peter with her, and in Neverland.

I have never been a stellar fan of Peter Pan himself, don't ask me why. He just 
wasn't my kind of character I guess. The Lost Boys were cute, and Hook was 
crazy, but nothing about Peter Pan made it a favorite of mine.

That being said I am entirely interested in reading about the possibility 
that Peter Pan acted like more than a seven year old. (Even if the point of
 Neverland is to never grow up). Even little boys get crushes too right? In the 
end I think I will read it when it comes out because simply put the 
concept is interesting enough to make me want to read it. 

On another note here is a book trailer for a book series that I quite adore 
(although I don't own it...yet)

Summary of White Cat (Book 1 of The Curse Workers)
Cassel comes from a family of curse workers—people who have the power to change your emotions, your memories, your luck, all by the slightest touch of their hands. Since curse work is illegal, they’re all criminals. But not Cassel. He hasn’t got the magic touch, so he’s an outsider—the straight kid in a crooked family—as long as you ignore one small detail: He killed his best friend, Lila. Now he is sleepwalking, propelled into the night by terrifying dreams about a white cat. He also notices that his brothers are keeping secrets from him. As Cassel begins to suspect he’s part of one huge con game, he must unravel his past and his memories. To find out the truth, Cassel will have to outcon the conmen.

Until next time!
