Book Review: Everything I Never Told You, by Celeste Ng

index.phpA well written but very sad novel about the death of a teenage girl and how family members can love each other while totally misunderstanding each other. The Lees are a mixed race family in 1970’s Ohio. Father James Lee, whose parents came from China, is a college professor and mother Marilyn is a reluctant homemaker and mother of three children. The parents have focused all their expectations and dreams on daughter Lydia with unfortunately disastrous results for all their children. You may see aspects of your own family or one that you know in these pages.
