Goodreads Summary: 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.

How I Got It: I bought it from Book Outlet.

When I Got It: Last year.

Why I Want To Read It: I heard lots of good things about this book around the time of its release date and then when I saw it on Book Outlet, I had to get it.  But of course I still haven’t read it yet.

Have any of you read this book?  What did you think of it?
