The Tiger Rising

by Kate DiCamillo

Rob's Life

What would you do if you couldn't seem to make friends? Is school seemed worse than prison? If your only living parent was your dad who never seemed to even see you? Rob's life seems rough yet he still seems hopeful that something better is coming if he can just hang on.

Sistine's Life

What would you do if you felt angry all the time? If you never fit in at school? If your mom never seemed to see you as a person with your own wants and needs? Sistine's life isn't what she wants but she can image herself with something better and she may just manage to help Rob along the way.

Rob and Sistine- tough choices ahead
