Reviews

"In the month after 16-year-old Maggie Chen's father, a respected journalist, was killed in a hit-and-run accident, a basement flood destroys his notebooks...Ingold relies on some contrivance to link her plot strands, but the openended conclusion feels realistic and highlights Maggie's elemental questions about how family history influences personal identity and how life moves forward after impossible loss." --Booklist

"Ingold (Hitch) weaves together two intersecting stories in this novel about identity and family...Though the historical chapters start slower, as Fai-yi's story builds, so does the tension and drama, especially his emotionally fraught relationship with his sister and star-crossed love...Ingold offers insight into the sacrifices and secrets involved in emigration from China during this period and their ripple effects." --Publishers Weekly

"This novel is a must read for those who love mysteries and family history." --VOYA
