'Everything I Never Told You' is a wonderfully elaborate and multifaceted book that paints the picture of complexities within a Chinese American family that is living during the 1970s. The book begins when the Lee family discovers that their daughter Lydia has been found dead in a lake nearby. The story continues as each member of the family reflects on their past as they each struggle to understand one another. This book not only sheds light on problems that all families face, but it also touches on topics such as racism and parental pressure, as well as the scars that they can leave on a person. Additionally, the characters are all very realistic and relatable. I'm sure everyone will be able to connect to this book in some way.
