SPOTLIGHT: Tigers, Not Daughters by Samantha Mabry

 Today I have a Spotlight Tour for Tigers, Not Daughters by Samantha Mabry! I featured this one on my blog earlier, but now we are celebrating it's paperback release. I really enjoyed this when I read it.
I did receive a free copy of the paperback from the publisher. Thanks so much to Algonquin Young Readers for letting me show it off again. There will also be a post on my instagram (later today) showing off the new paperback version. My instagram is @gotbookcitement

Synopsis:  The Torres sisters dream of escape. Escape from their needy and despotic widowed father, and from their San Antonio neighborhood, full of old San Antonio families and all the traditions and expectations that go along with them. In the summer after her senior year of high school, Ana, the oldest sister, falls to her death from her bedroom window. A year later, her three younger sisters, Jessica, Iridian, and Rosa, are still consumed by grief and haunted by their sister’s memory. Their dream of leaving Southtown now seems out of reach. But then strange things start happening around the house: mysterious laughter, mysterious shadows, mysterious writing on the walls. The sisters begin to wonder if Ana really is haunting them, trying to send them a message—and what exactly she’s trying to say.
In a stunning follow-up to her National Book Award–longlisted novel All the Wind in the World, Samantha Mabry weaves an aching, magical novel that is one part family drama, one part ghost story, and one part love story. (Synopsis from Goodreads)

Samantha Mabry credits her tendency toward magical thinking to her Grandmother Garcia, who would wash money in the kitchen sink to rinse off any bad spirits. She teaches writing and Latino literature at a community college in Dallas, where she lives with her husband, a historian, and a cat named Mouse. She is the author of A Fierce and Subtle Poison and All the Wind in the World. Visit her online at samanthamabry.com or on Twitter: @samanthamabry.
