January: Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng (hardcover fiction; call no. F NG)
“Lydia is dead. But they don’t know this yet.” So begins this exquisite novel about a Chinese American family living in 1970’s small-town Ohio. Lydia is the favorite child of Marilyn and James Lee, and her parents are determined that she will fulfill the dreams they were unable to pursue. But when Lydia’s body is found in the local lake, the delicate balancing act that has been keeping the Lee family together is destroyed, tumbling them into chaos. A profoundly moving story of family, secrets, and longing, Everything I Never Told You is both a gripping page-turner and a sensitive family portrait, uncovering the ways in which mothers and daughter, father sand sons, and husbands and wives struggle, all their lives, to understand one another.
