What we think:
Readers looking for a good cry-fest this summer need look no further. Take it from me and my tear-drenched copy of Everything I Never Told You. Just don’t take it to the beach: You don’t want to spend your balmy vacation hours sobbing over your book, using your wide-brimmed hat to hide your reddened, blotchy cheeks from fellow sunbathers.
In any other setting, however, this read should not be missed. Celeste Ng’s Everything I Never Told You is a powerhouse of a debut novel, a literary mystery crafted out of shimmering prose and precise, painful observation about racial barriers, the burden of familial expectations, and the basic human thirst for belonging.

Cheers!
