3 journalers for this copy...
I'll put it on my TBR and hopefully I'll get to it soon.
This is one of Blume's frequently banned books. When I was in Jr. High, I was a library worker. The librarian took all of the workers aside and showed us the shelf of "questionable" books that she wasn't allowed to put on the public shelves. She told us we were all welcome to check the books out.
Tiger Eyes was one of the books on the shelf.
True, there is some bad language in the book. There's also a sub-plot involving an alcoholic teenager, but the main character tries to help the teen get help, so it's not advocating teen alcohol use.
There are a couple of "make out" scenes, but nothing graphic.
There's nothing in this book that's ban-worthy, IMO.
This is being reserved for my banned/challenged books box.
This is a story of family trying to deal with the tragedy of losing their father/husband and I can empathize with Davey quite a bit. I lost my mom when i was not much older than her although not in nearly so violent a manner. It’s tough to deal with loss at any age but I think being a teenager and dealing with the loss of a loved is incredibly hard.
I will be reserving this one for my “already been crossed” bookbox.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:
"Did you carve this?"
Tas did not turn. "Yes," he said, reluctantly. "I have to leave it."
"But, Tas, why?"
Tas squared his shoulders as though firming some resolve. But still he did not turn. "Because the shepherd said that it could only be used once. Thats why I can't get the pipe to play that song-or any song. I've used the magic." He took a deep breath and went on. "And he said that once I found the magic I had the pass the pipe on." he paused and then he did turn, a scamp's humor in his long brown eyes. "It's going to be a long winter. I'm going to leave it here for someone else to find." "Snowsong" by Nancy Varian Berberick
