Davy's father is killed after a raid on his store and she is by his side as he dies. The book concentrates on when Davy's family move to Mexico for a year to live with Davy's aunt and uncle.
As with most Judy Blume books I've read, things are focused on what happens inside the main character (Davy), so don't expect a flashy, excessively dramatic plot. This is a book about growing up with a difference- when you somethimes have to do it the hard way.
Judy Blume's characters are always flawless and this is no exception- Davy is undeniably human and not perfect.
Judy Blume books are classics for girls between 12-15, each dealing with sensitive issues perfectly.
This book deals with the death of a family member, and the complicated grief process which ensues. It deals sensitively with the issues of life, mortality and death in a way which girls can understand. I sat in tears with this book. It really is very emotionally demanding, but it is really an excellent book. Highly recommended read.
I bought this book for my daughter, read it myself and found it utterly brilliant.
Ok its not complex but I liked the simplicity and clear emotion that this book produced...
Would recommend this book for all ages!!
The first one I re-read was Forever and while I did still really enjoy it I have to admit in a lot of ways it was quite dated and I'm not sure if teens today would love it as much as I did when I was younger. Tiger Eyes has a different feel to it, although it lacks modern conveniences such as mobile phones and the internet (no those things really didn't exist when I was a child and doesn't that make me feel old LOL), it didn't feel quite so out of touch as Forever did. I'm not quite sure why that is but it doesn't really matter, it just meant that I enjoyed Tiger Eyes as much as I always used to.
Davey is just fifteen years old when her father is murdered during a robbery of their family store. She is completely devastated by his loss and since her mother has completely fallen apart she is feeling lost and alone. Her aunt and uncle offer to take the whole family in so that they can get away from the memories of what happened and Davey finds her life completely uprooted. She's living across the country away from all of her friends and forced to attend a new school where everyone has grown up together and she is the outsider.Read more ›
