White Jade Tiger

Cassia Streb

Junior reviewer Cassia Streb (grade seven) sends the following note on White Jade Tiger (Orca Books) by Julie Lawson: "White Jade Tiger is about a girl who goes back in time to 1881 when the Chinese were brought over to Victoria to build the CPR railway. There she meets a friend and they go off on the search for the white jade tiger which is an important part of Jasmine's history. Her family is under a curse which will not be broken until the small tiger is returned to its rightful owner. With them not the only ones searching for the tiger, and Jasmine keeps going back to the present, the story is quite an adventure. The story can take you back in time as well, you feel as if you are part of the story. The vocabulary is easy to understand but the plot is something you have to keep track of."
