#24 — The Leavers

The Leavers by Lisa Ko
Rating: 4/5
  • About a Chinese-American boy who was first raised by his grandfather in China, then lived in the Bronx with his mother, then with a white family in upstate New York after his mother could not be found
  • The rest of the book slowly reveals what really happened, alternating between different narrators and perspectives
  • Very readable, as well as relatable for anyone who feels they straddle different worlds and possess multiple identities
