2014 book 151

Celeste Ng's Everything I Never Told You
Beautiful portrait of a 1970s biracial family after the death of their teenage daughter, flashing back and forth in time to illustrate their lives, from their Chinese father's issues with racial discrimination in academia and their mother's desire to be a doctor, to the three children's experiences as they come of age. I really, really liked this, and thought all five characters were outstanding. A.
