SHORTLISTED FOR INTERNATIONAL WRITER OF THE YEAR, SPECSAVERS NATIONAL BOOK AWARDS 2018

Everyone in Shaker Heights was talking about it that summer: how Isabelle, the last of the Richardson children, had finally gone around the bend and burned the house down.

In Shaker Heights, a placid, progressive suburb of Cleveland, everything is meticulously planned - from the layout of the winding roads, to the colours 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 teenage daughter Pearl, and rents a house from the Richardsons. Soon Mia and Pearl become more than just 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 rules that threatens to upend this carefully ordered community.

When old family friends 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 an unexpected and devastating cost...

What readers are saying:

'Highly recommended, beautifully written and thought-provoking'

'An engrossing read'

'Absolutely brilliant'

'Great characters, interesting plot that leaves you desperate to read more and written beautifully. I loved it and highly recommend it!'
Rezension
Little Fires Everywhere is a straight-up thriller...From the beginning, Ng's confident use of the omniscient voice signals that this is a writer in total control...While the plot whisks you breathlessly along, it lays out the bones of a debate about race and parenthood Sunday Times, Pick of the Paperbacks

Well written family drama
von Lisa F. aus Berlin am 10.09.2017
Bewertet: Einband: gebundene Ausgabe

A very well written family drama by Celeste Ng. I like that her books heavily focus on the characters because I enjoy character studies very much. Even though it is only the second book I've read of Celeste Ng, she is becoming one of my trusted authors very fast.
