This is a unit for the popular young adult novel Tears of a Tiger by Sharon Draper. I've used this novel with my 9th grade ELA classes but the novel will work with middle school as well. This novel deals with real-life issues of drinking and driving, depression and suicide. I always found that this novel brought up a lot of great classroom discussions about these controversial topics.
