Tiger's Curse by Colleen Houck

Title: Tiger's Curse
Author: Colleen Houck
Pages: 448
Level: Young Adult
Published: January 1, 2011
The last thing Kelsey Hayes thought she’d be doing this summer was trying to break a 300-year-old Indian curse. With a mysterious white tiger named Ren. Halfway around the world. But that’s exactly what happened. Face-to-face with dark forces, spellbinding magic, and mystical worlds where nothing is what it seems, Kelsey risks everything to piece together an ancient prophecy that could break the curse forever.

Review: Witcha had told me that she liked this book series a lot but she wasn't sure I was going to like it.I decided to read it anyways because I heard a lot of good things about it. Well yeah, I didn't like it. The main character had a very cliched personality- the damsel in distress. The plot, seemingly different, was not different at all. It is the same love triangle that has been retold a thousand times over. Another thing that bothered me was when Ren, the tiger, turned into a human, I couldn't picture him as the hot guy he supposedly was. All I could picture him was like this:
So when there was that little bit of romance between the main character and Ren, I was just like, EW. 
So yeah, I didn't like this book a whole lot.
