The Tiger Princess

 
  

Saderia is a tiger Princess. She lives with her Aunt and Uncle. Years ago a great fire sweep through the forest and Saderia's parents perished. Saderia's Aunt and Uncle do not understand Saderia. That is why when she learns something about her parents she does not tell her Aunt or Uncle.
Saderia learns that her parents death may not have been an accident. It is up to Saderia to uncover the truth. Even if it may hurt.
I really like the idea that Sarah came up with of a tiger Princess. Saderia is a good princess. She is sassy. However all of her sassiness could not keep me satisfied. None of the other characters drew me in. I found Saderia's Aunt and Uncle to be uncaring. While I know this was not totally true as I got further into the book, they did care. I just wanted them to be more sympathetic in the beginning.
There was plenty of mystery and action that Saderia found herself in. Again though without the support of the other characters to draw me into the story, it kind of went by in a blur. Although I found this book to be just alright, I am amazed that such a young author came up with this story and not this just one but several books. The younger readers will enjoy this book and getting to know Saderia. She will become their friend. She is like a girl only with fur and a tail.

 

 
 

Sarah Renee has loved writing from an early age. She has been writing short stories since the age of four, and at the age of ten, she came up with the idea for The Tiger Princess. She wrote the 340-page  novel when she was twelve. She is fascinated with wild animals and the wild world outside her home, and has an obvious great love of tigers. She enjoys spending time with her cats, reading, drawing, and playing her violin when she is not writing. In her free time, she is constantly daydreaming about her many characters, creating new ones, and coming up with interesting adventure story ideas. She is sixteen years old.

Thanks for your review of The Tiger Princess, Cheryl. I am also fascinated that a young person could come up with so many ideas and actually publish 5 books by the time she's 17. Amazing.
