Davey has never felt so alone in her life. Her father is dead - shot in a holdup - and now her mother is moving the family to New Mexico to try to recover.
Climbing in the Los Alamos canyon, Davey meets the mysterious Wolf, who can read Davey’s “sad eyes.” Wolf is the only person who seems to understand the rage and fear Davey feels.
Slowly, with Wolf’s help, Davey realizes that she must get on with her life. But when will she be ready to leave the past behind and move toward the future? Will she ever stop hurting?

I would definitely recommend any audiobook narrated by Emma Galvin. She performs excellently and captures the characters' vocal differences without sounding forced.
This is the first book I've read authored by Blume, and I was quite engaged throughout the story due to how she deals with a very difficult theme to explore--death--without being preachy. If you are looking for a tear-jerker, this book is NOT for you. However, if you are looking for a book that is moving yet reserved, touching yet plausible, then I recommend "Tiger Eyes."
Most narratives do not make me cry. This book was no different. However, it definitely moved me. I recently lost several people in my life, so reading this book allowed me to step back and connect with the characters as they cope with death.
