      This book is about a little boy named Rob, who lives with his dad in a motel after his mom died. The owner of the motel owns a tiger, who has no name and is treated poorly in a small cage. Bullying is a main theme in this story. This book has some very sad parts, but also a few happy ones too. I would recommend this book to kids 9 and up, it’s a really good book.
