The Piano Teacher by Janice Y. K. Lee

The Piano Teacher: A Novel - Janice Y. K. Lee

Very disappointing. It sounded potentially interesting, but it really fell flat. I disliked all of the characters, especially some of the main ones, which made it difficult to keep reading. The author doesn't really give you a reason to care for the people or what happened to them. It just happened and here it is, and not in a very well-developed way.
