Everything I Never Told You

Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng (Penguin, 2014)

Introduced by Ellie Wait

#BlindBookworms series

I read this book from cover to cover in a number of days. My immediate interest was provoked by the ‘who dunnit?’ aspect of the story. It’s no secret that I love a harrowing murder mystery but I feel as though this book is much more than that.

Everything I Never Told You subtly and precisely explores many social and political issues throughout many decades in America. Its realistic take on racism, sexism and positive discrimination was woven so delicately that it wasn’t until I put the book down I even noticed it’s strong influence.  I strongly believe that anyone who considers themselves to be politically engaged would gain a thought provoking perspective on the march of progress from this book.

I have heard exciting news that Celeste Ng will soon be releasing another book and I will certainly be getting my hands on a copy as soon as possible in hopes that it will intrigue me as much as Everything I Never Told You did. As far as I’m concerned, Celeste really has set the bar high for herself!
