Most helpful positive review
"Tears of a Tiger" is the story emotional tale of four high school teenagers, who are involved in a alcohol related car accident. This accident would change their lives forever because Robert who was a passenger is killed. Andy, who was the driver and Rob's best friend is scarred by this tragedy and learning to cope with the loss is daily struggle. Athough Andy is in the process of understanding and forgiving himself for what happened to his best friend, the everyday battle gets to be too much for him causing him to commit suicide. "Tears of a Tiger" is a great book that can be incorporated into the classroom in numerous ways. Discussing the importance of refraining from the use of alcohol and drugs is the most important lesson. Showing students that only negative consquences can come from using alcohol jail, death, and diseases that occur due to alcohol use. Have students research newspaper, news, and other media sources for stories similiar to Andy's would be a good way to show them how often alcohol related deaths happen. Discussing peer pressure is another, children all deal with some sort of peer pressure but how he/she reacts in the important thing. Having a group decision about methods of saying no to peer pressure. I really enjoyed this book, I think you provided me with an inside look at how bad depression can be and the results of it if it's not controlled. So many times things happen in our lives that leaves us depressed or very saddened but, finding a way to cope with it is best.

a little outdated with the watching movies on cable and fax machines and car phones and Whitney Houston, but timeless in it's treatment of very serious teen issues. Told from many perspectives, with many types of writing (poetry, news, diary, convos) great discussion starter and captivating enough for even a reluctant reader. Some of the slang may be hard to pick up. Mentions specific Cincinnati places like Fountain Square, Boone County, etc.

Very emotional and well written. Very interesting to read from different individual perspectives. Simple to follow. A great lesson for teens. This book had me crying because two of my friends died and this was during a very emotional time in my life. I would defiantly read this book to my students to make them feel like they are not alone if they go through a death in the family or someone that is very close to them.

The book Tears of a Tiger by Sharon Draper is a book that I dedicate to all alcoholics out there in this world. Andy, B.J, Tyrone, and Robert where four best friends who joked and played around but they didn't realize having much fun can lead to trouble, big trouble. Andy's life has dramatically change after a horrible night. A night when he lost one of his best friends, Robert. It was the night the four best friends went out after winning their basketball game in their hig school, Hazelwood High.

This book tells of the story when four teenagers got in a car accident because they were all drinking. It is a very sad and touching story. While the four teens are driving, they crash. All but one of these teens survive. This causes many difficulties for the otheres. The one teenager thinks about commiting suicide, but his friends talk him out of it. The other two do their best to just move on. This book actually made me cry. It was very sad but also very likable. It draws your attention and will sweep you away to the world in which this story takes place. I highly recommend this.
