Everything I Never Told You starts like this: “Lydia is dead. But they don’t know this yet.” Obviously with an opening like that, I was hooked right away. I’m still getting to know the characters and the world they live in, but from what I’ve read so far I can already tell that Celeste Ng is a fantastic writer who is going to tell me a very sad story. I probably should’ve chosen something a little more uplifting though, because I’m still reading the heartbreaking book A Little Life and could use something a little more…cheerful.
