National Book Award nominee Samantha Mabry weaves "a shivery, magical exploration of the power of sisterhood" (People) in this otherworldly Latine ghost story about three sisters shadowed by guilt and grief over the loss of their eldest sister, who haunts their house. The first time Ana Torres came back as a ghost, her sisters weren't there. A year after Ana's death, Jessica, Iridian, and Rosa, still consumed by grief and haunted by her memory, start noticing strange things around the house: laughter without a voice, shadows cast by nothing, writing on the walls. None of them have seen Ana, but they know she's trying to send them a message--or maybe it's a warning. Tigers, Not Daughters is an aching, lyrical novel with a whisper of magic, that is one part family drama, one part romance, and one part ghost story. "A moody and unflinching examination of the gritty, tender, and impossible parts of people that make them unforgettably whole. . . Ferocious and gorgeously crafted." --Courtney Summers, New York Times bestselling author of Sadie Writers League of Texas Book Award Winner * MPIBA Reading the West Award Winner * Indie Next pick * Kirkus Reviews Best Young Adult Book * SLJ Best Book * Shelf Awareness Best Book * BCCB Blue Ribbon List title * NEA Read Across America title * A Must-Read Novel According to BuzzFeed, Entertainment Weekly, Ms. Magazine, BookPage, Publishers Weekly, Tor.com, and D Magazine And don't miss Samantha Mabry's next book: Clever Creatures of the Night!
