Though this book review is from August 2007, it's great to finally find it. One of the aspects of book reviews is that the authors don't necessarily hear of them, and they aren't always easy to find.
The AARP recommended the Price of Silence:
"In this gripping, intelligent psychological thriller, Emma Perotti, an ESL teacher in Manhattan, folds one of her young Chinese students into her family, with dire results. Particularly compelling are the book's subtle insights into the nature of family and foreignness and the lies we tell ourselves and others even when our intentions are good."
