Book Review #27 (When You Trap A Tiger)

Book: When You Trap A Tiger

Author: Tae Keller

Genre: Magical Realism

Page Count: 306

Lily’s Mom is moving her and her sister Sam to live with their Halmoni, for no apparent reason. But when a magical tiger shows up and offers Lily a deal, she begins to realize all is not how it seems.

I really liked this book. I read it for book club and at first I was a little skeptical because it sounded kind of weird, but then I started reading it and was like “whoa, this is cool!”. I’ve only read one other book in it’s genre (that I can think of) so it was interesting to read another.

My favorite character was probably Sam. I liked how different she was from Lily, and her growth throughout the book. I also liked that the cast of the book was relatively small, a huge contrast to most of the books I’ve been reading for fun lately.

If you like slightly strange fantasy books, you should read this book!!!
