Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng

What a wonderful surprise! I knew nothing about this debut novel before I began to read it, and found it a thoroughly pleasurable experience.  It is the story of the Lee’s, a racially mixed family, half Chinese-American, half WASP, living in a small town in Ohio in the 70’s.  The novel begins with sixteen year old Lydia Lee’s death, and then unfolds to reveal layers of problems and untold dreams within the family.  I highly recommend it.
