I loved Little Fires Everywhere. It takes about a third of the book to build to the real plot point of the book, but I honestly didn’t care. Ng’s description of the characters and their lives have me truly fascinated. It could’ve been a road to nowhere and I would have gladly walked down it. Luckily it was not a road to nowhere. The discussion of race, family, life, and motherhood in particular were done in a way to make you both cringe and sympathize with each character. You walk away knowing nobody was fully right or wrong and that each one was trying to live their best/most authentic life from their point of view. I loved this book and will be recommending it to many people in the future.
