Tiger Eyes Review

 

Tiger Eyes

Judy Blume

Davey has never felt so alone in her life. Her father is dead (shot in a holdup) and now her mother is moving the family to New Mexico to try to recover. Climbing in Los Alamos Canyons, Davey meets mysterous Wolf, who seems to understand the rage and fear she feels. Slowly, with Wolf’s help, Davey realizes that she must get on with her life. But when will she be ready to leave the past behind? Will she ever stop hurting?

This was such a “meh” book. Don’t get me wrong, its not BAD as such. The story was typical, a grieving teenager who moves to a new city and meets new people. The ending (kinda *SPOILER*) is kind of bittersweet, but it sort of depressed me. To be honest this reminded me of Sarah Dessen books, except Sarah Dessen has longer books where you ACTUALLY have time to form a bond with the characters.

People who are grieving someone close might be able to relate to Davey and her behaviour, but this book just wasn’t my thing.
