From the bestselling author of Everything I Never Told You comes 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.

Review Quotes

“With brilliance and beauty, Celeste Ng dissects a microcosm of American society just when we need to see it beneath the microscope.”

Jodi Picoult, #1 New York Times bestselling author

“Opposites attract and also ignite in this thoughtful novel.”


“[Ng] probes privilege and the compromises it requires in a riveting novel.”

O, The Oprah Magazine

“[Ng’s] descriptions are so dead-on you can practically see the Cleveland skyline as you ride shotgun with these characters.”


“Totally absorbing, each character drawn so well it makes it impossible to decide whose side you’re on.”

Marie Claire

“[Ng] captures her setting with an ethnologist’s authority…And there are time-capsule pleasures in her evocation of 1997.”

Wall Street Journal

“Witnessing these two families as they commingle and clash is an utterly engrossing…Who set the littles fires everywhere? We keep reading to find out, even as we suspect that it could be us with ash on our hands.”

New York Times Book Review

“Witty, wise, and tender. It’s a marvel.”

Paula Hawkins, #1 New York Times bestselling author

Has the irresistible pace of an expertly tuned thriller and the observational brilliance of lasting literature. It marks Celeste Ng as a writer of the first rank, among the very best in her generation—right there with Zadie Smith and Jacqueline Woodson. I was mad for this book.”

Joe Hill, #1 New York Times bestselling author
