ARC Review: Last Night at the Telegraph Club by Malinda Lo

Rating: 5 out of 5.

This was slow and poignant and very real. I felt like I was there in 1950s San Francisco, chafing at the bonds of being a “Good Chinese Girl” and slowly discovering myself. I really enjoyed it.

I do think that the (overly long) flashback sections about Lily’s parents and aunt when they were younger were unnecessary. They kept wrenching me back out of Lily’s story and I feel like they detracted from the story a bit.

I was afraid it would end tragically, but I’m satisfied with how it ended. It was fitting and believable and left room for hope.

*Thanks to NetGalley and Penguin Young Readers Group for providing an e-arc to review.
