The Vine: August 22, 2014
I (and my sister!) need your help finding a book from my pre-teen years. This would be the early '90s.
It's a young adult horror novel. Here are the basic plot points I remember:
– There is a boy with a Deep Dark Secret and a girl who falls for his mysterious, brooding ways.
– There is a school dance involved somehow. Maybe prom?
– There also is a tiger. This is the fuzziest part for me and my sister, but there was a white tiger in it in some way.
– The big plot twist/reveal is that the boy thought he murdered his mother but, in fact, his father had murdered her and convinced the boy he was crazy and had killed her.
I've already looked through plot descriptions of the Point Horror series and I know it wasn't a Christopher Pike novel. Google has failed me so far! I'm hoping some Vine readers might have shared mine and my sister's obsession with young adult horror novels and can point us in the right direction.
