Year 16, Book 68

68. Searching for Sylvie Lee by Jean Kwok

Sylvie and Amy are the daughters of Chinese immigrant parents in New York. As a young child Sylvie was sent to live in the Netherlands with her grandmother and some other family relatives before being brought to live with her parents and new sister when she was nine. Now as an adult she has returned to say goodbye to her dying grandmother, but now she’s missing. Amy overcomes her own fears to travel to the Netherlands and try to find out what happened to her sister. In her pursuit she uncovers some long hidden family secrets. I quite enjoyed this book. I thought it had a good mystery. I liked the way the author played with voice and perspective. I thought there were a lot of good sibling relationship things. I give it a 7 out of 10.
