Tiffany Sly Lives Here Now Reviews
This is definitely a TEEN YA book, and I really enjoyed it for that and many other reasons. But first: the pacing in this book is a bit of a wreck. If you can put that to the side, particularly when it comes to Anthony's change of heart almost immediately, that will serve you well.
Tiffany Sly's mother died, and she's been sent to live with the father she's never known in California. Her father lives in a big house, with a new wife, and four other daughters. Tiffany is out of place for all of tho ...more
This book surprised me in a good and bad way:
-In a bad way because religion plays a huge part in this (the father and family Tiffany didn't know she had are Jehovah Witnesses), and I don't like reading books where religion is front and center.
-In a good way because in spite of the big part religion plays here, I liked the book and wow, I did not expect it. But do you know why I think I liked the book? Because of Tiffany Sly. She's a character I absolutely enjoyed getting to know.
Yes, Tiffany ...more
I really loved this story! Tiffany Sly Lives Here is full of humor, sad and relatable moments, a complex family situation, and interesting neighbors one might call crazy but I found it all refreshingly different. A wonderful novel from a great storyteller.
Tiffany has recently lost her mother to cancer and is preparing to leave her grandmother, best friend, and all that is familiar and safe behind to move in with a father she knows nothing about. But before leaving Chicago, another man comes for ...more
This is an incredibly complex novel, and one that fits a lot into it's short timeframe, which was fully impressive. I loved Tiffany Sly and I love all the pieces of her that Dana L. Daviw uses for her story.
Above all this was a story about family (Grace, if you're reading this: there's no romance!). To Tiffanny, family has meant one thing: her mother and grandmother. Now, her mother is dead and her grandmother is in Chicago, and Tiffany has a new family and more questions than she's ever had be ...more
I am Tiffany Sly, and she is me.
I have to admit this book surprised me. I wasn't sure where this book was going to go, because I admittedly did NOT read the blurb for this book.
I seen the cover, and honestly--that was enough for me. I have to pat myself on the back--because I did well. This was a great read.
Tiffany Sly's Mom dies from cancer--and Tiffany is sent to live with the father she never met--in a totally new state. BUT, before she leaves, another man comes forward, claiming to be Tiff ...more
Tiffany Sly Lives Here Now may be a little rough around the edges, but it's a gem of a book. This book is as messy as it comes, but that was what made it wonderful.
- About a girl, following the loss of her mother, and her life after she moves in with the father and family she never knew she had.
- I adored Tiffany Sly. Davis did an incredible job giving her an authentic and believable voice.
- Explores religion, faith, and tradition, and how the three can have such an influence on a family and h ...more
This was a really fast and absorbing read that pairs really nicely with HOME AND AWAY by Candice Montgomery, thematically. I loved the touch of their family being Jehovah's Witnesses, because that's really not something I've seen in YA (and now I'd really love to see a YA from the POV of a teen who actually is one, especially if they embrace and love it). Will definitely be picking up whatever Davis writes next.
