Yolk By Mary H.K. Choi | Book Review

This story follows Jayne Baek as she navigates through life in the glamorous New York City. She hasn't kept company with her sister (who, by the way, lives in NYC as well) in a while and has been residing in an enervated apartment with her housemate christened Jeremy. Jayne has been avoiding her sister, June, in the city due to their eclectic differences and she feels discomfited when she is around her. When the news of June's sickness hits Jayne, the sisters are thrown together once again to provide aid and reliance on one another. This event puts other sequences into action and they are, eventually, coerced to confront Jayne's eating disorder, the family drama that lingers in the corner of their mind, and the secrets that each of them has.
