Giveaway: Everything I Never Told You

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. -- Penguin

Last summer, I read a wonderful book called EVERYTHING I NEVER TOLD YOU by Celeste Ng -- you can read my review here. I adored this book, and as I re-read my review, it quickly becomes apparent that there were just so many good things about this novel. I gushed over EVERYTHING I NEVER TOLD YOU and rightly so. This novel was a New York Times Bestseller, a New York Times Book Review Editor’s Choice, winner of the Alex Award, and winner of the APALA Award for Fiction. It was also named a best book of the year by the following: NPR, San Francisco Chronicle, Entertainment Weekly, The Huffington Post, Buzzfeed,  Amazon, Booklist, St. Louis Post Dispatch, Shelf Awareness, Book Riot, School Library Journal, and more!

I still remember what a powerful novel EVERYTHING I NEVER TOLD YOU WAS. I loved the complexity of the characters as well as the mystery aspect of the story. And I could just go on and on about Ms. Ng's writing. In fact, this book would make the perfect book club pick, especially since it was recently released in paperback. You can check out the reading guide here.
