Tears of a Tiger

by Sharon Draper  |  Grades 7-12  |  Lexile 700

Andy Jackson was driving the car that crashed one night after a game, killing Robert Washington, his best friend and captain of the Hazlewood High Tigers. It was late, and they'd been drinking, and now, months later, Andy can't stop blaming himself. As he turns away from family, friends, and even his girlfriend, he finds he's losing the most precious thing of all--his ability to face the future.
