Narrator Greta Jung is outstanding at capturing both the youthful and adult voices in this chapter book for tweens. She embodies the quiet, thoughtful Lily in a subdued tone. Listeners will empathize with the shy Korean-American girl who wants to disappear at the sign of any conflict. Lily's quiet personality alternates with the sassiness of her older sister, Sam, who will entertain young listeners with her bristling retorts to adults. Sam is contrasted with the girls' grandmother, whom they address in Korean: "Halmoni." Jung makes her character distinctive with lightly accented English. A lively, confident narrator is exactly what listeners need for a story that bends into Korean mythology as Lily realizes she is being followed by a tiger only she can see.
