    My Louisiana Sky Is A Good Book

    My Louisiana Sky is a book about a tomboy named Tigar. She lives with her parents and her grandma. Her parents are mentally slow. So Tigar's grandma lives with them. She gets teased about her parents a lot at school. Sometimes she wishes her parents were normal. Her grandma is very strict and she doesn't mess around. Her mom is playful and doesn't do a lot around the house. Her dad works at Mr. Thompson's plant nursery and he's only home at night. They are very close to each other. Tigar does chores with her grandma and likes to play baseball.
    Tigar wants to fit in with the other girls at school. She can't because they don't have a lot of money and because of her mom and dad. Tigar hangs out with boys most of the time. One of the boys Jesse wanted to be more then friends. So he kissed her but, she didn't want to be more then friends. That ruined the friendship. In the middle of all of this Tigar's grandma dies of a heart attack, because she saw a snake in her garden. Then her aunt comes to town to help with the funeral. While she's there she asks Tigar to come live with her. Tigar goes down to her aunt's house for a week to how she would like it. She is faced with a decision that will change her life.

    This is the best book I have read in a LONG time

    My Louisana Sky is a great book. Tiger Ann Parker is a pre-teen with 'slow' parents. That live in a rural area in Louisiana called Saitter. She deeply loves her parents and would do anything for them. As she enters middle school her peers look down on her and make fun of her because of her parents. While the children are making fun of her, their parents are baffeled about how Tiger managed to win the spelling bee 5 years in a row and how she has straight A's, they don't know where she gets it. She has the usual girl teenager problems with boys, even though she is living in the 1950's. She is a tomboy but thrives for the attention of the popular girls. Her grandmother is the one she goes to for help and when suddenly her grandmother, the backbone of the family the one who runs the house-hold entirely, has a heart attack, she is lost and confused. Her fancy, sophisticated Aunt Dorie Kay from Baton Rouge comes to the rescue and gives Tiger the chance to live with her in Baton Rouge. After Tiger gets to Baton Rouge she has a few changes made and gets her hair cut so that she looks like Audrey Hepburn and she goes shopping with her aunt for more sophisticated clothes. While living the life of her dreams as just Ann Parker she can't help wondering why her mother can't be like her Aunt Doreen.After she discovers some secrets she realizes how important her family really is to her. She is willing to take the bantering to live with her real parents that deeply love her and care for her. This book is entertaining and at times tear jerking.

    Good Book!

    I enjoyed reading this book. It had a great storyline and I loved the charachters. I could totally relate to Tiger because I like to wonder off, play sports and just go exploring. Cool kids book.

    A good book

    This book was really sad, and made me feel really bad for kids with families like Tiger's who are criticized for differences that they can't control.

    A Very Well-Done Book!

    I think that Kimberly deserves credit for this wonderful book. Tiger Ann has many troubles and she is living through them just like any child would. It's not like a storybook world...where everything is perfect. It's just normal, and things go on that you must have strength to deal with. This is a wonderful book.
