Lydia is dead. But they don t know this yet. So begins this exquisite novel about a Chinese American family living in 1970s small-town Ohio. Lydia is the favorite child of Marilyn and James Lee, and her parents are determined that she will fulfill the dreams they were unable to pursue. But when Lydia s body is found in the local lake, the delicate balancing act that has been keeping the Lee family together is destroyed, tumbling them into chaos. A profoundly moving story of family, secrets, and longing, "Everything I Never Told You "is both a gripping page-turner and a sensitive family portrait, uncovering the ways in which mothers and daughters, fathers and sons, and husbands and wives struggle, all their lives, to understand one another."
From our buyer, Margaret Terwey: Everything I Never Told You is a heart-wrenching debut that begins with the mysterious death of 16-year-old Lydia. As mysteries unfold, this gripping page-turner explores the divisions between cultures, the rifts within a family, and the basic human need to belong.
