Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Walking through the misty Florida woods one morning, twelve-year-old Rob Horton is stunned to find a tiger — a real-life, very large tiger — locked in a cage. What's 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 — can't be locked up forever.

Synopsis:

From the best-selling author of Because of Winn-Dixie comes the moving story of an eleven-year-old-boy, Rob Horton, who finds a caged tiger in the woods behind the hotel where he lives with his father. With the help of his new friend, Sistine Bailey, Rob must decide what to do with his discovery and at the same time come to terms with his past.
