Lily and her sister Sam are upset when their mother suddenly decides to move from their home in California back to their grandmother’s house in Washington State. They arrive in a downpour, tired and tense after the long drive, to find that Halmoni is not home—the girls talk to and about their grandmother Ae-Cha using the Korean word for grandmother, halmoni,할머니, as if it were her name. To get in out of the rain their mother forces her way into the house. Things look strange inside, boxes from the basement are stacked in the middle of the floor. Lily feels uneasy. Just before they arrived, she was sure that she saw a tiger in the middle of the road, a large tiger that neither her mother nor her sister saw.

Then Halmoni comes home from shopping. She’s her usual cheerful and eccentric self. But, at night Lily finds her sick, sweating and vomiting violently. As the days go by, it becomes clear to Lily that her halmoni is very sick. This is scary.

When Lily nervously confides to her grandmother that she’s seen a disappearing tiger, she asks, “Am I going crazy?”

Her grandmother warns her to stay away from tigers, they are very bad and tricky. She then adds,

“You mom doesn’t believe in any of this. Her world is small. But you know: the world is bigger than we what we see. … The tigers looking for me. … I steal something that belongs to them—long, long ago, when I little like you—and now they want it back. … This one real. Tigers real.”

Horrified, Lily is determined to trap the tiger stalking her grandmother and make a deal with it that will heal Halmoni. She succeeds; she traps the tiger, but the tiger is tricky. ( )

Lily, her mother, and her older sister move in with her halmoni - her grandmother - and things are...off. Her mother and sister are at each other's throats too much, and Halmoni seems to be not well. And then Lily starts seeing a tiger, and Halmoni is the only one who believes her.

This newbery Medal winner is about the danger and beauty of stories, about the truth behind magic, and the power of belief. It's good, but I think it could have been better. Here we go again with my general dislike of magical realism, but honestly, that stuff needs to be *seamless* and this doesn't quite make it. There are also so holes in the story here and there (characters who get ignored for chunks of the narrative and whose absence feels like a mistake, other characters who need to be fleshed out more...), which don't ruin it completely, but they were there, lurking in the background, the whole time for me. So, it's an enjoyable read, but not at the top of my Newbery Favorites list. ( )

children's middlegrade fiction (when your Korean grandma has terminal cancer and you discover your hidden tiger side, and also uncover some of your family history)

Tigers can be invisible and sneaky until they decide to strike--but they also remember, and they also love stories. That sentence wasn't as eloquent as it seemed in my head when I woke up this morning, but you get the idea. ( )

RGG: Wrapped in the mythology of Korean folk stories, a young girl copes with her grandmother's dying. Interesting introduction of the stereotype of the QAG. Realistic older-younger sister dynamic, with the twist of the very low-key coming out of the older sister. Lovely, quiet story
