The Tiger Rising

author: Kate DiCamillo

Walking through the misty Florida woods one morning, twelve-year-old Rob Horton is stunned to encounter a tiger--a real-life, very large tiger--pacing back and forth in a cage. Whatís more, on the same extraordinary day, he meets Sistine Bailey, a girl who shows her feelings as readily as Rob hides his. As they learn to trust each other, and ultimately, to be friends, Rob and Sistine prove that some things--like memories, and heartache, and tigers--canít be locked up forever.

"A lush, exotic little gem--this writerís a keeper." - Karen Hesse, Newbery Medal-winning author of Out of Dust.
