Holt gives the reader a perfect example of what it was like to grow up in a small southern town. Tiger is a young girl who finds comfort in her granny. Tiger's parents are called "slow". They are both developmentally challenged. When granny dies, Tiger is faced with the choice of moving in with her aunt or staying with her parents. Her aunt lives in Baton Rouge. They live in a small town called Saitter. Tiger decides that she will stay with her parents. Even though Tiger would love to live in a big city, she finds that her love of her family means more to her. During a hurricane, Tiger realizes that her mother would risk her own safety to make sure that she was safe and out of harms way. The book is an easy read and it provides a good sense of who the characters are as well as vivid descriptions of the settings.
