Tiger Eyes by Judy Blume

Older Cover

Tiger Eyes is a young adult novel written by Judy Blume in 1981. It’s a Dorothy Canfield Fisher Award, An ALA Best Book for Young Adults. As well as a major motion picture.
Even though this story has violent and crime it’s not the whole center of this story. It’s about Davey who has to deal with life after her father death. Davey, her mother and younger brother visit relatives in New Mexico. As Davey tries to deal with her new life when she meets a young guy named Wolf; when Wolf asks Davey what her name was she said Tiger. Later he says her eyes look sad. Wolf helps Davey deal with her new life. He helps her over come her fears, problems and shows her she has strength to over come her problems.
This 224 page book was one of the first few books my mother told me about that got my hooked on reading. I feel in love with this story because it’s written well. The characters and the plot are captivating. Davey, wolf, her brother and mothers are few of the reasons why this story is still popular in to day’s world. I think that this story teaches people that they can over come there problems. Tiger Eyes is differently a must read for anyone who enjoys a story about a young girl who learns to deal with life and the problems that may come with it.
