Action,adventure,sadness,friendship,love,hate,and even moments that will stop your breath.These are all the feelings you will encounter in this book.The book is by Kate DiCamillo.This is a great book and it would defiantly be worth your time. This book is about a boy named Rob who finds a tiger while walking through the woods one day!He and his friend,Sistine,a girl he meets from school, go on a mission to set it free. They get themselves into co much mischief that it seems like they will never get out.Will it be love that settles there differences or hate that will tear them apart?Find all this information out when you read The Tiger Rising. The thing i liked best about this book is that it shows you can always trust a friend and that you shouldn't be afraid of what your friend might think.And that is a very great life lesson. I recommend this book to kids 10 and older who like animals and adventure.

The Tiger Rising is a short book that packs an intense emotional wallop. A young boy struggles to contain and ignore the intense grief and various other problems he is facing. The story uses symbolism to show how the boy faces his grief and learns to set it free.

Read this last year and couldnt put it down as many time my teacher told me to. Theres only one curse word but you will get over it. The setting is in a dull town, i believe this boy lives with his dad at a hotel. If you ever read this book i know for sure you will like it. Because how the book is set up, and the choice of words that is in then the book. As a 10 year old im inpressed. ~Brianna Cole

This book made some interesting points such as the relationship between rob and the Tiger, the tiger and rob are kind of connected. Because it seems as if rob has a strong spirit inside of him (the tiger) that's waiting to get out and show everyone and every thing what he can really do, and the reason him and the tiger are connected is because rob is afraid to let the strong spirit inside of him to show, much like he is afraid to let the tiger out of his cage. I recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a good read, this book was a real page turner, because I was always wanting to know what was going to happen next, I really enjoyed this story because it had an interesting story line, in total this is a very good read.

Do not read and trust the review below, by 'Sam'. Read them all, and count the positive to the negative. This book is an excellent must-read!

Our class read the novel, The Tiger Rising, by Kate DiCamillo. Some of us loved it, and others thought it was only okay. But our teacher thinks it is excellent and since she is the boss we are going with a 'recommended' rating. The main characters are Rob and Sistine. Both kids, who are in the 6th grade, are going through a hard time. At the beginning of the book, Rob¿s mother just died, and Sistine has just moved to Florida from Philadelphia because her parents got divorced. Both kids are being bullied in school. Rob copes with his hard time by pretending that his feelings are locked in an imaginary suitcase. He discovers a tiger locked in a cage behind the motel where he is living with his dad. The owner of the hotel, Beauchamp, asks Rob to feed the tiger a couple times a day, and gives Rob the keys to the cage. Why is there a tiger locked in a cage? What does Rob¿s friend Sistine think about the tiger? Will Rob and Sistine overcome their problems? Join Rob and Sistine as they figure out what to do, and learn to trust the grown-ups to help them.
