Running from the Tiger

Aleesah Darlison

When eleven-year-old Ebony meets enigmatic Teena, they instantly become much more than the ‘default’ friends Ebony has grown used to having. Only when the girls come to trust one another fully do they unlock each other’s troubling secrets, enabling their friendship to deepen.

Running from the Tiger is a tale of trust, friendship and the power that can be found once we stop running.

I’d recommend Running from the Tiger to any reader older than twelve who is interested in finding out about the adversity suffered by many in our community in an easy to read format.'
