Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* When Danny Cheng's father loses his job, his parents' carefully constructed life starts to break apart. His father settles into a depression, and his mother becomes more manic. Both worry constantly about money and Danny's safety. At the same time, Danny has problems of his own. He keeps deep secrets from those closest to him about how he might be responsible for the death of his friend, Sandra, one year before, and about his true feelings regarding his best friend, Harry. As Danny struggles to make sense of his parents' strange behavior, he uncovers evidence of secret lives, of names abandoned, and of a sister he thought had died long ago. Using the metaphor of quantum entanglement that objects brought together will continue to act in concert even if they are taken apart Gilbert effortlessly times characters' present actions with key revelations about their past. With grace and respect, Gilbert manages to address the existential quandaries of both second-generation American teens and their immigrant parents who must make profoundly life-changing choices to give their children the best life possible. The result is both exhilarating and tortuous Gilbert methodically lays bare her characters' secrets as if she was slowly pulling a cloth off a fine painting.--Suarez, Reinhardt Copyright 2018 Booklist"
