This book opens with “Lydia is dead. But they don’t know this yet.” and I was hooked as soon as I read those two sentences. The book reveals the history of all members of this inter-racial family, the parents own thwarted ambitions for themselves and their hopes for their children, especially the elder daughter Lydia.
I also enjoyed Celeste Ng’s book “Little Fires Everywhere“. I wonder if she is writing more books?
