Everything I Never Told You – Celeste Ng. Thank you to Dawn (Bury Library Computer Centre) for submitting her thoughts about this book.
‘A tragically sad family drama that reveals it’s secrets slowly, drawing you in. I found this a very moving novel.’ Dawn
Lydia is the favourite child of Marilyn and James Lee; a girl who inherited her mother’s bright blue eyes and her father’s jet-black hair. Her parents are determined that Lydia will fulfill the dreams they were unable to pursue – in Marilyn’s case that her daughter become a doctor rather than a homemaker, in James’s case that Lydia be popular at school, a girl with a busy social life and the centre of every party. But Lydia is under pressures that have nothing to do with growing up in 1970s small town Ohio. When Lydia’s body is found in the local lake, James is consumed by guilt and sets out on a reckless path that may destroy his marriage.
