For February, we present you an excerpt from Mira T. Lee's debut novel, EVERYTHING HERE IS BEAUTIFUL. The novel follows Lucia, a Chinese American woman who struggles with mental illness, and the people who love her, most notably, her fiercely protective older sister. Told from multiple points of view, the novel explores the heartbreak and helplessness that mental illness has upon individuals and those around them, and the struggle everyone seeks to be understood. This early section comes before the mental illness has set in and introduces us to Lucia, her sister Miranda and Yonah, the man Lucia loves.
