My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When high school junior Lydia turns up dead in the lake, every member of her bi-racial Chinese-American family examines the events in their communal life leading up to that moment.

She also sheds light on the devastating effects of parental pressures on student academic performance. – Ms. Stone, teacher
