Everything I Never Told You
By Celeste Ng
"Lydia is dead. But they don’t know this yet. 1977, May 3, six thirty in the morning, no one knows anything but this innocuous fact: Lydia is late for breakfast.”
Lydia Lee, the middle child of the Lee family goes missing. After many days of worried suspense, her body is removed from the town lake. Lydia's parents, James and Marilyn are horrified with their daughter's death. As the police investigate what happened, her parents both discover that Lydia wasn't popular and doing well in school like they thought. She was actually a loner with almost no friends and her grades had severely slipped.
