    Everything I Never Told You

    Ng’s debut novel opens with the death of Lydia, the golden child of a Chinese-American family in 1970s small-town Ohio. But the factors leading to Lydia’s shocking end can all be traced back to the secrets and motivations of her parents, James and Marilyn. The best (and worst) part is, if they’d only talked about their hang-ups, weaknesses, and insecurities, they could have changed their family’s tragic legacy.
