Growing up in Saitter, Louisiana, in the 1950s, twelve-year-old Tiger Ann struggles with her feelings about her stern, but loving grandmother, her mentally slow parents, and her good friend and neighbor, Jesse.
"Aunt Dorie Kay is a grown-up, sophisticated woman who left her rural Louisiana roots far behind when she reinvented herself in the bustling business world of Baton Rouge. She's everything her twelve year old niece, Tiger Ann, dreams of becoming. When the death of Grandma Jewel gives Tiger the opportunity to move in with Dorie Kay, she cuts her hair like a movie star, wears the latest clothes and begins calling herself Ann. But the glamour soon wears off, loneliness sets in, and Tiger realizes that the love of her family and old friends still tugs at her heart and touches her soul."--Container.
