Symbolism: the tiger's cage. Represents keeping your feelings locked inside.
Simile: The tiger was "like staring at the sun itself, angry and trapped in a cage." The tiger was so bright it looked like the sun.

The teacher suggest me to use this book to do the book report. At the first I feel very exited because of the tiger. At last I feel sad because the tiger died. I will rate this book 5 stars because the story is very emotional and interesting, and I will recommend it to anyone who likes sad stories. ㄨ

The book resolves the main conflict and Rob ends the book much happier. He has one good friend and he wants to go back to school instead of running away from it.
