Tears of a Tiger by Sharon Draper
Tears of a Tiger

Bree, November 10, 2007

I work with struggling readers at the High School level. My students could not put this book down. For some students it was the first book they ever read. They were so excited that Draper also had written books similar to it. Our classroom library is now filled with her stuff. So many of todays youth have problems like the issues that Draper discusses, but they don't know how to deal with it and feel so alone. Tears of a Tiger allowed students to know that they are not alone and that other kids their age also have tragedies in their lives. I fully recommend this book to the reluctant reader. If this book doesn't get the "at risk" kid reading, then I don't know what will.
