Everything Here Is Beautiful

Everything Here Is Beautiful LEE, Mira T.

A tender but unflinching portrayal of the bond between two sisters." --Celeste Ng, New York Times bestselling author of Little Fires Everywhere "There's not a false note to be found, and everywhere there are nuggets to savor. Why did it have to end?" --O Magazine "A bold debut. . . Lee sensitively relays experiences of immigration and mental illness . . . a distinct literary voice." --Entertainment Weekly "Extraordinary . . . If you love anyone at all, this book is going to get you." --USA Today A dazzling novel of two sisters and their emotional journey through love, loyalty, and heartbreak Two Chinese-American sisters--Miranda, the older, responsible one, always her younger sister's protector; Lucia, the headstrong, unpredictable one, whose impulses are huge and, often, life changing. When Lucia starts hearing voices, it is Miranda who must find a way to reach her sister. Lucia impetuously plows ahead, but the bitter constant is that she is, in fact, mentally ill. Lucia lives life on a grand scale, until, inevitably, she crashes to earth. Miranda leaves her own self-contained life in Switzerland to rescue her sister again--but only Lucia can decide whether she wants to be saved. The bonds of sisterly devotion stretch across oceans--but what does it take to break them? Everything Here Is Beautiful is, at its heart, an immigrant story, and a young woman's quest to find fulfillment and a life unconstrained by her illness. But it's also an unforgettable, gut-wrenching story of the sacrifices we make to truly love someone--and when loyalty to one's self must prevail over all.
