Couldn’t put it down
By guess :)
I read this book in about a week. Such great characters, you feel like you know them.
Beautiful. Powerful. Wonderfully written.
Loved the characters, the content, the story. Felt each character’s feelings. I will read every book she puts out. I am a fan!

No surprises here
The book was a pretty easy, quick read. The ending was largely predictable from the beginning of the book. The story line and the dialogue felt very cliche at times. The author's style of writing was also very descriptive, so much so that it was honestly difficult to get through paragraphs at any given time and the writing felt forced in places. For anyone that likes a story painting a portrait of a family with movies-esque drama, this is your read. But otherwise, I'd look into another.
It's about Tiger moms, and parents wanting the best for their kids, and the bias in society, and the dynamics of a family, in this instance, an Asian-American family. It resonated so much in me because it felt real, a plot that could happen in real life. I hope they make this into a movie.. Looking forward to another great novel from Ms. Ng..

This book is brilliantly structured and is a great read on several levels. It is much more than solving the question of how Lydia died. The story of being different, or of wanting to be different, or wanting to fit in, is a universal story that transends time, place, generations, and is played out all too tragically in schools, streets, and neighborhoods today. A close read of Ng’s detail and emotionally packed book is in order. As much as it is a page-turner, it is a great lesson, too.
A quick but beautiful and moving story of the dynamics of a family. Loved it!
10/10 would recommend. I finished it this morning and I am quite sad that it's over. Such a good read.
