Walking through the misty Florida woods one morning, twelve-year-old Rob Horton is stunned to encounter a tigerâa real-life, very large tigerâpacing back and forth in a cage. Whatâs 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 thingsâlike memories, and heartache, and tigersâcanât be locked up forever. Featuring a new cover illustration by Stephen Walton.
