Searching for Sylvie Lee by Jean Kwok
Sylvie Lee has disappeared while on a trip to the Netherlands to visit her dying grandmother. Sylvie has lived most of her life with her Grandmother after her parents were unable to care for her when they immigrated to the United States. Later she is reunited with her mother and father when her sister, Amy is born. The novel revolves around the search to find Sylvie. I enjoyed the Netherlands setting and the determination of Amy to find her sister. I found the ending rushed and unrealistic. Overall, the story and characters kept me engaged..Themes of self-identity, immigration, family ties and secrets provide an intriguing read.
