amazing

I loved this book. As a book for young readers, I was delightfully surprised as I enjoyed it very much for myself as It has very mature issues. I was thinking about it for my 10 year old nephew, but it is not for him.

Worth Purchasing!

This book was an assignment for our son in his 4th grade ELA class during the distance learning part of the COVID-19 pandemic. The school provided links to listen to someone read it on YouTube and the person didn't pronounce words correctly and was very inanimate. Being a member for Audible for several years, I purchased this book and my son and I listened to it and completed his assignment in 2 days. The narrator is exceptional! The author is exquisite! The story was wonderful. Of course, I cried.

The Tiger Rising

Wonderful emotional layers. My 9 Yo granddaughter appreciated the emotional connections. Her favorite piece of the story was the realization of dad and son having each other. They both missed mom but they had each other. They were not alone in their feelings of loss.

Breaks my heart

Wonderfully lyrical, textured reading. Heartwrenching story. Two hours never felt longer, and I still wanted there to be more once it was over. Couldn't recommend this story more.

Intense for kids

The story works but some of the characters interactions are intense for young people. Thanks
