New York: Aladdin Paperbacks, 1996. New Talent Award, 1995. The first winner of the Coretta Scott King New Talent Award, Tears of a Tiger is a wonderful choice. This award category is designed to recognize and encourage new writers, and Sharon Draper's novel is worthy of this first-time honor. The story involves the death of popular high school basketball player Robert Washington in a drunk driving accident. His friends and classmates must deal with the aftermath of the accident and his death. Particularly hard-hit is Andy Jackson, the young man driving the car in which his friend and teammate burned to death during the fiery crash.

Page 18 Although it has an immediately recognizable moral from the outset, Tears of a Tiger is emotionally challenging. It raises issues concerning family, friendships, strength of character, and above all else, personal responsibility for choices and consequences. This novel will appeal to young people and spark debate in classrooms where it is used.
