...yes, Judy Blume has written another beautifully written novel that touches and inspires. Even the hardest of hearts will have to avoid getting a tear in their eye as you read of Davy's journey to conquer her grief over her father's death.
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.

I am 24, and must have been 13 when I read this book, but it really stuck in my mind as a truly excellent book.
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 was an avid Judy Blume reader in my teens, I loved her stories.

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!!

By Sarah (Feeling Fictional) TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 12 July 2014
Format: Paperback
I was a massive fan of Judy Blume as a teenager, at the time there weren't the huge range of YA books that we have now and she was one of the few writers that I could turn to when I wanted to read a book about teenagers with real problems, ones that I could relate to. Recently Judy Blume visited the UK and I got the chance to attend an event with her and I can't tell you how excited I was to meet the author who wrote some of my favourite childhood books. It had been a long time since I'd read any of her work though so I decided to re-read a couple of her books before the event.

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.

Like another of the reviewers I read this book when I was about 13 or 14.It is one of my all-time favourites and helped me to cry for someone else when I couldn't cry for myself. I've read it more than once and passages and words still remain in my head. It has been part of my own emotional growing process. I cannot recommend it enough

Format: Paperback
An excellent novel tracing the feelings of a teenage girl whose father is murdered. She works through her grief and comes to terms with the situation. There is no happy ending but there is an embracing of life in its future potential without going back to the past. Ordinary adolescent worries about 'zits' and being" rude to her mother, ordinary feelings, e.g. her sweat made a pool in her bra and went cold. — all combine to make this realistic. A good book for bereaved teenagers and for those who seek to be with them through their crisis.

I really loved this book. It has a simple plot yet so much information and emotion is passed on through the words. Great read.
I have enjoyed loads of Judy Blume's good and this was one of them. Definitely recommend.

Davy an 14 year old girl has just gone through tradgedy, her father was just murdered and now she, her brother and mum have to move in with her horrble Uncle and over-protective Aunt. She just can't deal with it and escapes to the rocky canyons for a few hours each day. She meets new friends and has a blast in her new home but her short temper gets her in trouble with the olds.this story ends happily enough though. it's a very touching story that I have read over and over and over and over and over again. It's absolutly brilliant. Girls aged 12- 15 should love this book (sorry guys!) so why not read it to see for yourself if I should rate it 5/5!
