In her debut novel, Cambridge author Mira Lee delves deep into the tangled relationships we have with our families, and the challenges of mental illness.

The book, "Everything Here Is Beautiful," follows two sisters, Miranda and Lucia, and the sacrifices they're forced to make. Lucia struggles with chronic mental illness, with diagnoses varying from schizophrenia to bipolar disorder.

Lee writes from the point of view of each sister, painting a vivid picture of their relationship and the difficulties that define it.
