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

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

"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 Fires Everywhere is the perfect gift for the holidays!

  • Excellent read and great character development!

    Just a rare good read! The characters were so well thought out and their psychological motives explained and implied that I found myself actually caring for them. This just doesn’t happen much these days as the old pros turn to pumping out their predictable banal pros. So move over Patterson, Gresham and Brown. There’s a real author in town and it’s a whole new show. Thank you.
  • Amazing book!

    I loved C. Ng’s last book so when this one came out, I trusted her enough to not even read the description. Like the last book, some loose ends were never tied and that kills me!! Lol. Other than that, bravo! Intriguing til the last page.

    By Boots12
    The character development was decent, a quick read, but I never felt engaged. Dull.
