Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Celeste Ng's latest novel covers quite a bit of territory but ultimately coalesces into one powerful tale. Though the cast of characters is varied, two strong women rise to the top.
Elena Richardson grew up in Shaker Heights - a planned and predictable community. Her life has been nothing else. College, marriage, stability, 4 children, and so it goes.
Mia Warren is a free-spirited artist. She and her teen daughter, Pearl, live a vagabond lifestyle as they relocate regularly when Mia's art calls.
When Mia and Pearl land in Shaker Heights and start over in the Richardson's rental duplex, Mia intends to stay put and provide her daughter with some permanence in her life. Over the course of less than one year, friendships bloom, romance ignites, secrets are revealed, and lives are forever changed.
