A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith | 34 Classic Books That Won't Actually Bore You

Celeste Ng's compelling debut novel, Everything I Never Told You, is set in 1977, a time when races in America tended to be categorized as "black," "white" and "other." The Lee family — Chinese-American father, white mother and mixed-race kids — falls distinctly under "other." And while existing outside the black/white racial tension might seem nice, it has allowed the Lees to avoid asking difficult questions about who they are and how they fit in to their small Ohio town.
