有時候,我們需要燒光一切,重頭來過。

害怕失去的同時,
其實已經一點一滴地失去了。
那是個富裕的烏托邦,觸目所及盡是美好。
為免發生不得體、不愉快,這裡每件能做及不能做的事情都受到規範,震顫崗的居民們相信,只要堅守「秩序」,就能創造桃花源。或許是追求完美的信念太過強烈,以致滲入了土地,讓這裡生長的人們力求超脫,對缺陷的容忍度極低,就連青少年也一樣。

某天,15歲的少女珍珠,和她從事藝術創作的母親蜜雅來到震顫崗落腳,經過嚴格的審核後,她們有幸成為理查森太太的房客。理查森太太向來很挑房客,只租給她認為明明很善良,卻因為種種原因受到上天虧待的人。能夠幫上天彌補他們,她覺得很高興,因為她向來期許自己慷慨慈善。

理查森家有四個孩子,蕾西擁有燦爛的笑容及輕快的笑聲,崔普有著帥氣的外表和迷人的酒窩,與珍珠同級的穆迪有顆浪漫的心,蜜雅母女漂泊的藝術家生活令他嚮往。唯獨么女小伊,大家總說她瘋瘋癲癲、無事生非。
震顫崗一貫的安全平靜,從孩子們在美術館發現蜜雅的照片後開始崩塌,一件觸動大眾神經的領養女嬰監護權官司,似乎也與蜜雅有關。理查森太太決定暗中調查,意圖揭穿蜜雅的神秘過往,但她的執念卻導致一場星火燎原,而毀滅的代價足以用餘生償還……

THE NEW YORK TIMES TOP TEN BESTSELLER

'I am loving Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng. Maybe my favorite novel I've read this year' John Green, author of The Fault in Our Stars

'To say I love this book is an understatement. It's a deep psychological mystery about the power of motherhood, the intensity of teenage love, and the danger of perfection. It moved me to tears' Reese Witherspoon

The brilliant new novel by the author of the New York Times bestseller, Everything I Never Told You.

Everyone in Shaker Heights was talking about it that summer: how Isabelle, the last of the Richardson children, had finally gone around the bend and burned the house down.

In Shaker Heights, a placid, progressive suburb of Cleveland, everything is meticulously planned - from the layout of the winding roads, to the colours 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 principal is playing by the rules.

Enter Mia Warren - an enigmatic artist and single mother- who arrives in this idyllic bubble with her teenage daughter Pearl, and rents a house from the Richardsons. Soon Mia and Pearl become more than just tenants: all four Richardson children are drawn to the alluring mother-daughter pair. But Mia carries with her a mysterious past, and a disregard for the rules that threatens to upend this carefully ordered community.

When the Richardsons' friends attempt to adopt a Chinese-American baby, a custody battle erupts that dramatically divides the town and puts Mia and Mrs. Richardson on opposing sides. Suspicious of Mia and her motives, Mrs. Richardson becomes determined to uncover the secrets in Mia's past. But her obsession will come at unexpected and devastating costs to her own family - and Mia's.

Little Fires Everywhere explores the weight of long-held secrets and the ferocious pull of motherhood-and the danger of believing that planning and following the rules can avert disaster, or heartbreak.
