About the Novel:
When You Trap a Tiger is told from the point of view of an eight-year-old third generation Korean-American. Lily lives with her older sister and their mother. After learning of their grandmother’s illness, Lily’s mother moves the family back to her childhood home to be closer to their halmoni, a Korean word for grandmother. Lily loves visiting her halmoni. They make delicious Korean dishes and listen to her Korean folklore stories. On their way, Lily sees a magical tiger in the road. When she tells her halmoni of what she sees, Lily is warned to stay away from the tiger. Long ago, back in Korea, Lily’s halmoni stole stories from the tiger, and now it’s back to collect. The story follows Lily’s struggle to break out of her shell as she deals with the impending reality of her grandmother’s death.
