Walking through the misty Florida woods one morning, twelve-yearold Rob Horton is stunned to encounter a tiger a real-life, very large tiger pacing back and forth in a cage. What's more, on the same extraordinary day, he meets Sistine Bailey, a girl who shows her feelings as readily as Rob hides his.
