'I read Little Fires Everywhere in a single, breathless sitting.' –Jodi Picoult

“To say I love this book is an understatement. It’s a deep psychological mystery about the power of motherhood, the intensity of teenage love, and the danger of perfection. It moved me to tears.” - Reese Witherspoon

“I am loving Little Fires Everywhere. Maybe my favorite novel I've read this year.”—John Green

'Witty, wise, and tender. It's a marvel.' – Paula Hawkins

From the bestselling author of Everything I Never Told You, a riveting novel that traces the intertwined fates of the picture-perfect Richardson family and the enigmatic mother and daughter who upend their lives.

In Shaker Heights, a placid, progressive suburb of Cleveland, everything is planned – from the layout of the winding roads, to the colors of the houses, to the successful lives its residents will go on to lead. And no one embodies this spirit more than Elena Richardson, whose guiding principle is playing by the rules.

Enter Mia Warren – an enigmatic artist and single mother – who arrives in this idyllic bubble with her teenaged daughter Pearl, and rents a house from the Richardsons. Soon Mia and Pearl become more than tenants: all four Richardson children are drawn to the mother-daughter pair. But Mia carries with her a mysterious past and a disregard for the status quo that threatens to upend this carefully ordered community.

When old family friends of the Richardsons attempt to adopt a Chinese-American baby, a custody battle erupts that dramatically divides the town--and puts Mia and Elena on opposing sides.  Suspicious of Mia and her motives, Elena is determined to uncover the secrets in Mia's past. But her obsession will come at unexpected and devastating costs.

Little Fires Everywhere explores the weight of secrets, the nature of art and identity, and the ferocious pull of motherhood – and the danger of believing that following the rules can avert disaster.

    Little’s fires is an amazing and important piece of literature. It tackles varying themes that are controversial and explores many sides of each situation. It made me really ponder the importance or race relations; what is racism and blindness; equally as damaging. The idealized scenery of Shaker Heights was reminiscent of the neighbour hood I grew up in, Lawrence Park, Toronto Ontario; garbage in back, garage in back, no rubbishy out front; picturesque to the eye, but what about in deep? Thank you Celeste Ng for the amazing g story, I just really want to follow up with Izzy, Mia, Pearl, and B.B. and the rest of the cast of characters!

    One of the best books I have (read) heard in a very long time. I am a bit wary of watching the series on Hulu since I loved the book so much!!

    An interesting story. A little too much high school drama for me to give a 5 star, but an interesting twist at the end. I think it will be a cross-generational favorite.
