Year 7, Book 50

50. Tigers in Red Weather by Liza Klaussman
This story is told in 5 different parts by the 5 main characters Helena, her cousin Nick, Nick’s husband Hughes, Nick and Hughes daughter Daisy, and Helena’s son Ed. It also covers a span of about 20 years starting right after World War II. The family is living in a house on Martha’s Vineyard called Tiger House. Each character tells the story from their own perspective filling in further what happened during each time period while adding in additional parts of their own story. I was not overly in love with this book. It was well written, but I just couldn’t get into the characters. I didn’t really care about any of them and consequently didn’t care what happened to them. I give it a 6 out of 10.
