Editorial Reviews

Review

Lawson's book is especially recommended for strong readers with an interest in history.

(Carolyn Helman Times-Colonist)

Julie Lawson has written a story so well grounded in real-life Victoria, B.C., now and in 1881, that the fantasy of time travel between our time and the past seems natural and necessary. White Jade Tiger is successful, both at telling a gripping story and finishing it in a satisfying, believable way.

(Paula Johanson Times-Colonist)

Young-adult readers will enjoy meeting Jasmine and Keung and sharing their adventures as they search for the white jade tiger. Recommended.

(Darlene R. Golke CBRA)

This is a complex and ambitious first novel. Lawson skilfully interweaves the narratives of present and past, exploring the concerns of each on many levels. The examination of racism and greed in B.C.'s early days is well integrated into the narrative.

(Joanne Findon Quill and Quire)

White Jade Tiger opens up a window onto another world, and allows recognition of the riches inherent in another culture.

(Kathleen Bailey)

"Lawson's considerable ability to bring her characters to life, and the adept use of dialogue and description, make this a highly recommended book."

(Joyce L. White)

Lawson successfully combines a very real sense of period, a vivd portrait of the lives of the Chinese workers who built the railway, and an exciting adventure.

(Andrea Deakin The Vancouver Sun)

Format: Paperback
This is a great book for teaching ELL, especially if you have Chinese students and are teaching it in Victoria, B.C. A comprehensive teacher's guide is available for studying vocabulary and comprehension. I really wish, however, that an audiobook were available. Rating: 5/5.

This is the best book ever. I recommend it for everybody who like mysteries, adventures, and to read this book you have to be a really smart reader. (So says a ten yr. old who read it as a novel study.)

This book tells the story of the Chinese people who came to build the railroads. For a Westcoaster it gives a chance to learn our history through an interesting magical tale.

my teacher made me read this one, what i found was that the book was amazing! I loved the time travel, a heroine who know how to defend herself, who is independent, she is normal and I could really relate to her. The plot is wonderful, though I had to read it twice to really get it througholy. 4 years after I read it, I read it again! I fell in love with it!
