com Inc. *Category:Book ReportsPaper Title:Tiger EyesText:The title of the piece of literature I chose to read was Tiger Eyes,by Judy Blume. This book contained 205 pages. My choice forreading this book was that I enjoyed reading many of her workswhen I was younger. She always had a way of relating well withthe younger generations, which draws me to her books quiteoften.The main protagonist in Tiger Eyes was Davey Wexler,a 15 year old girl from Atlantic City.
Daveys headstrong waysand her beautiful heroicness gave her a unique individualitywhich grew through out the book. Another main character inthis story was Wolf, a young man who enjoyed rock climbing.His unique ways also gave him an almost mystical heir whichfascinated Davey. The last main character in this novel wasGwendolyn Wexler, Daveys mother. Her extreme love andsupport for Davey through out the novel was her main role.In Atlantic City, on a hot summer night, Adam Wexlerwas the victim in a hold up of his 7-Eleven store. He was shotseveral time in the chest. The assailant was never found.
DaveyWexler was there to experience it all, holding her dying father inher arms, helpless and frightened. These are the memories thatfaced Davey every day. Giving the family time to recover,Davey, her mother, and her younger brother visited her fatherssister in Los Alamos, New Mexico. While there Davey met Wolf,an adventurous rock climber, and many other new friends.With their help Davey is able to overcome the fear and despairshe had encountered from her fathers death and was able tosee the world again as someplace where good adventurescould occur.
My fathers death was the most horrifying experienceof my life. As he laid in my arms, bleeding and still hanging onto life, there was nothing I could do to save him. After thefuneral, all I could do was sleep. I did not want to open myeyes, for fear would consume all of me. I was so afraid ofeverything that I slept with a bread knife under my pillow forprotection. When we arrived in New Mexico, it was still hard todeal with it all. Although my mother encouraged me to try andexplore, I was still upset and extremely angry.
Then, meetingWolf gave me a new hope and realization of it all. He showedme that life was a true adventure and that living it to its fullpotential was the best way to live. I know what I felt for himwas not love, but a strong connection between theexperiences that we had endured. His father was,unfortunately, dying of cancer.
The support that we gave eachother made us stronger and more able to face the world eachday. If it was not for Wolf, along with Reuben and Jane, I wouldnot be able to experience life without fear.Tiger Eyes was an extremely realistic novel, withcharacters which you could almost transform yourself into.Through out the story, each character metamorphousized intoa stronger, courageous, more capable being.
It is thosetransformations which give the book its wonderful, and almosthaunting actuality. This is one of my all time favorite novels.Each time I read it the experience is new, different, and betterthan that of the first.-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
