My study buddy, Henry, has made it his mission to get me to an A in maths the way I’m trying to get him to an A in English.
Wen Zhou is the daughter and only child of Chinese immigrants whose move to the lucky country has proven to be not so lucky. Wen and her friend, Henry Xiao – whose mum and dad are also poor immigrants – both dream of escape from their unhappy circumstances, and they form a plan to sit an entrance exam to a selective high school far from home. But when tragedy strikes, it will take all of Wen’s resilience and resourcefulness to get herself and Henry through the storm that follows.
Tiger Daughter is a novel that will grab hold of you and not let go.
‘An unforgettable story of family, friendship and finding your voice. I adore this book.’ – Nova Weetman
‘This gem of a book is packed with moments of unbearable tension and characters so complex and vivid they will stay with you long after it ends. At once heartbreaking and uplifting, Tiger Daughter is a testament to the strength of women and girls – and a terrific read. I couldn’t put it down. Beautiful. Brutal. Brilliant.’ – Ambelin Kwaymullina
