Tiger Ann Parker is smart in school and good at baseball, but she's forever teased about her family by the girls in class. Tiger Ann knows her folks are different from others in their small town of Saitter, Louisiana. They are mentally slow, and Tiger Ann keeps her pain and embarrassment hidden as long as her strong and smart Granny runs the household. Then Granny dies suddenly and Aunt Dorie Kay arrives, offering Tiger Ann a way out. Now Tiger Ann must make the most important decision of her life.
mrsmac (United Kingdom) (2009/11/15): I liked Tiger Ann Parker, the heroine, whose parents are "slow", and whose grandmother runs the household. This is a Young Adult read, although any agegroup will find something to take away from in this book.
