Twelve-year-old Fee is a shy Korean American boy with a powerful voice that wins him a place as section leader of the first sopranos in his local boys’ choir. But when Fee learns how the director treats his section leaders, he is so ashamed that he says nothing of the abuse, not even when Peter, his best friend, is in line to be next. The director is eventually arrested, and Fee tries to forgive himself for his silence. But when Peter takes his own life, Fee blames only himself. In the years that follow he slowly builds a new life, finally settling into a job at a school near his hometown. There he meets a young student, Arden, who, to his shock, is the picture of Peter—and the son of his old choir director. Told with “the force of a dream and the heft of a life,” Edinburgh is a haunting debut novel that marked Chee “as a major talent whose career will bear watching” (Publishers Weekly).
