Waiting on Wednesday: Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine. Today we are waiting for Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng!

A new coming up from the author of Everything I Never Told You!

Publication date: September 12th, 2017
Publisher: Penguin Press

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.

I admit I haven't read her other book... it's on my TBR list I swear! I just never got to it. Both books have quite good reviews in general so I'm curious. I know they're contemporary (a hit or miss for me) but I'll give them a chance! Has anyone read them?

Are you excited about Little Fires Everywhere?
