Tiger Eyes

by Judy Blume  |  Grades: 7-12  |  Lexile 590  |  Reading Level 4.1

Davey Wexler has never felt so alone. Her father has just been killed--shot in a holdup at the 7-Eleven near their home. And now her mother has transplanted her and her little brother, Jason, to Los Alamos, New Mexico, to stay with family and recover.

But Davey is withdrawn, full of rage and fear and loneliness. Then one day, while exploring a canyon, she meets an older boy who calls himself Wolf. Wolf is the only one who understands her--the only one who can read her sad eyes. And he is the one who helps her realize that she must find a way to move forward with her life. 

Davey is one of Judy Blume's most hauntingly true human beings, capturing the deep ways a person can change that can't be seen--only felt. Her story has been felt, deeply, by readers for decades.
