Tears of a Tiger
My opinion
I love the book tears of a tiger because it is a very interesting book.I love how the book relates to alot of things that are happening in our society today.For example drinking and driving can be a very dangerous thing and this was one of the major factors in the book that caused alot of problems.I love how this book also opens up the eyes of everyone on how teenagers get along in high school.Once you start reading this book you want to continue to see what happens next.
Recommend
I would recommend this book to all readers who loves a suspenseful book.This book makes you want to keep reading and captures all your attention.I would also recommend this book because it sends a strong message to teens who are in high school.This book shows how one mistake can take over someones entire life.It also shows the negative impact that alcohol can have on people.This book also would open up the minds of other teenagers and how to deal with problems throughout life.
