Book Review Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng
Shaker Heights is a perfect little community outside of Cleveland. Perfect houses. Perfect lawns. Perfect jobs. Perfect schools. And the perfect Richardson Family. Leading this family is Elena Richardson, lifelong Shaker Heights resident and a perfect citizen who follows the rules.
The perfection begins to unravel the day Mia Warren and her daughter Pearl arrive in Shaker Heights, moving into a rental house owned by the Richardson’s. Mia, an unconventional artist and mother, as far from the Shaker Heights kind of women Elena Richardson aspires to.
Mia’s mysterious past, Elena’s nosy obsession, Pearl’s friendship with the Richardson children and Izzy’s (the youngest daughter) obsession with Mia and desire for a different life than Shaker Heights, will collide in a heartbreaking tale of loss in so many ways.
Little Fires Everywhere will make you sit up and think about your own choices in life, secrets you carry, decisions you’ve made and what really is the meaning of family and mother.
