      I recently read the book The Tiger Rising by Kate Dicamillo. The genre of this book is realistic fiction and I recommend this book because the author uses vocabulary that evokes emotions in the reader. I would recommend this book for someone that has lost a loved one or someone going through a hard time. If you like this book then you will most likely enjoy Because of Winn Dixie. -Mrs. Timb's 2nd Block

        The Tiger Rising is a great book. It is about a boy named Rob. Then Rob fines a tiger he could not stop thinking about it. then a new girl by the name of Sistine moved in. Rob thought she was trustworthy so he told Sistine about the tiger. I recommend this book to people who are in 3th to 6th grade.

        I love this book. If you like adventure and are in 3rd-5th grade this book is recommended. It is about a boy named Rob. Rob's mom dies. They move to Florida where Rob meets a tiger who is in a cage. He met a girl during school named Sistine and he told her about the tiger and she is desperate to let it go. Together Rob and his father go through a lot of hard times.

              The tiger rising does not have much adventure in my opinion. But it is funny and i love the characters of the book.

                  This one of the best. How the author describes little things in big detail, gives me goosebumps and wants me to read it over and over! I would recommend this book if you are looking for a book you wouldn't just read once and get bored of it. In my opinion I think this book should be ages 6-7 and up, cause' the book gets pretty sad.

                    It was a fairly good book but NOT the best if you are searching for books with suspense and good plots.
