 cover of your favorite/most anticipated summer read!
Have fun with this, include pictures, the recipe (so we can all try it**) and tell us about your book choice. Have you read it? Are you anxiously awaiting its release this summer? Why?


3 oz tapioca pearls
1 cup brewed black tea
1 cup milk
2 parts white sugar
1 part brown sugar
Several cups of water.

Boil 3 parts of water in a pan and add both the sugars. Reduce heat and simmer until the sugar dissolves; the sugar syrup is ready for use. Boil 4 parts of water in a large pot. 
Add the tapioca pearls to it and continue boiling for half an hour. Stir often to avoid the pearls from sticking together. Drain and rinse them with cold water.
Put them in the sugar syrup while ensuring that they remain completely immersed in it and stir them well. Transfer the sweetened pearls to a large jar.
Cool the brewed tea to room temperature and pour it in the jar containing tapioca pearls along with the milk. Add the sugar syrup to it and transfer the mixture to a cocktail shaker.
Put some ice cubes into it and shake well to mix. Pour the bubble tea into a serving glass and put a thick straw in it. Serve chilled.

Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson (July 3rd, 2012)

I heard great things about this book! I also love Peter Pan! I excited to read this book!
- Lisa Nguyen

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

Fifteen-year-old Tiger Lily 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.

Peter is unlike anyone she's ever known. Impetuous and brave, he both scares and enthralls her. As the leader of the Lost Boys, the most fearsome of Neverland's inhabitants, Peter is an unthinkable match for Tiger Lily. Soon, she is risking everything—her family, her future—to be with him. When she is faced with marriage to a terrible man in her own tribe, she must choose between the life she's always known and running away to an uncertain future with Peter.

With enemies threatening to tear them apart, the lovers seem doomed. But it's the arrival of Wendy Darling, an English girl who's everything Tiger Lily is not, that leads Tiger Lily to discover that the most dangerous enemies can live inside even the most loyal and loving heart.
