Tears of a Tiger

by Sharon M. Draper

Four high school basketball players win a basketball game and go driving around to celebrate. They all drink some beer, and Andy, the car's driver, ends up swerving into a wall. The car catches on fire, and Andy's best friend dies while the other three basketball stars survive. The surviving three go on with their lives trying to deal with tremendous guilt. Andy, however, has a hard time dealing and seeks help through counseling. Although he tries to convince everyone he's doing better, his girlfriend knows the truth - Andy is on the brink of falling apart in a major way.
