Something else for Rob to think about is Sistine (as in the chapel), a new city girl with fierce black eyes who challenges him to be honest with her and himself. Spurred by the tiger, events collide to break Rob out of his silent introspection, to form a new friendship with Sistine, a new understanding with his father, and most important, to lighten his heart. This novel is about cages--the consequences of escape as well as imprisonment. The story and symbolism are clear as a bell, and the emotions ring true.

It was a really good book I think it kinda just ended though. It kinda left me wondering what happens next. I want a second book.Published 3 days ago by Minne Mouse
Read this aloud to my 4th grade class. They were transfixed and always begged me to keep reading as I came to the end of a chapter. Read morePublished 1 month ago by M. S. McCauslin

In the tiger rising, there is a lot of heart in it and I mean a lot. Sistine ended up being less fierce than she seemed. Read morePublished 2 months ago by MRHE student wolf
