Told from the first person point of view of Tinkerbell, Anderson puts a more realistic spin on the classic story of Peter Pan. Anderson explains that most of what children believe about Neverland is a myth – there’s no pixie dust, the lost boys don’t fly, and immortality isn’t as nice as it might seem. Tinkerbell witnesses and describes the love story between Peter Pan and Tiger Lily; a love story that, as Tink describes, doesn’t end well.
This one is basically Peter Pan fanfic. However, there’s nothing childish or “Disney” about it. In some ways, Peter is the villain of the story, and Wendy is a “home-wrecker”. Like many girls, Tiger Lily finds herself caught in the middle – loving Peter and hating him, but too afraid of getting hurt to tell him her true feelings.
