“Little Fires Everywhere” by Celeste Ng

“Little Fires Everywhere” is a story of a placid, progressive suburb of Cleveland - Shaker Heights where 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.  Elena Richardson embodies the lifestyle perfectly with her guiding principle of playing by the rules.

An enigmatic artist and single mother, Mia Warren, arrives in this idyllic bubble with her teen-aged daughter Pearl and rents a house from the Richardson’s.  Mia and Pearl soon 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 overturn this carefully ordered community.

When old family friends of the Richardson’s 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.
