This book is a marvel as was her previous one, Everything I Never Told You. If Ms. Ng (I have learned that it is pronounced Ing) can keep up this level and writes her next novel set in the present, that one could very well be The Great American Novel of the 20's.

This one is set in the 90's and takes place in American suburbia. A very prominent theme is adoption and "who's baby is it". Another theme is of course racism.

All the characters are deeply interesting, not one of the relatively large "cast" is flat or one-dimensional. The narration of the audio book is flawless - one of the best I've experienced. The narrator's name is Jennifer Lim.

I cannot recommend this novel enough.
