The National Book Award finalist from the best-selling author of BECAUSE OF WINN-DIXIE. Walking through the misty Florida woods one morning twelve-year-old Rob Horton is stunned to encounter a tiger - a real-life very large tiger - pacing back and forth in a cage. Whats more on the same extraordinary day he meets Sistine Bailey a girl who shows her feelings as readily as Rob hides his. As they learn to trust each other and ultimately to be friends Rob and Sistine prove that some things - like memories and heartaches and tigers - cant be locked up forever.
