Tiger Daughter

Author(s): Rebecca Lim

Junior Fiction

Wen Zhou is determined to create a future for herself that is more satisfying than the life her parents expect her to lead.


Equal parts heartbreaking and hopeful, Tiger Daughter is a wonderfully compelling and authentic Own Voices novel about growing up Asian in Australia.


What I feel most days is that nothing is ever going to change. That my life won't even start, and that I'll be stuck like this forever.

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 struggling immigrants - both dream of escape from their unhappy circumstances, and 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
