Celeste Ng has written a haunting yet beautiful story. I never wanted the novel to end, yet I had to keep reading! When middle child, Lydia Lee disappears, her family’s lives are changed forever. Ng has the reader hooked from the first line. She builds suspense examining the family’s present, while entwining their past. This is not a typical mystery book; Ng has created a family that has complexities both internally and externally. She has the reader wanting the Lee family to prevail, yet there are significant challenges they must face.
I would recommend Everything I Never Told You to someone in a heartbeat! This novel moved me, I felt for the Lee family and their challenges.
I received a copy of the novel from TheReadingRoom in exchange for an honest review.
