Little Fires Everywhere is a story about relationships, love, secrets, loyalty and everything else that comes with being part of a family and a community. It is a coming of age novel of sorts, though not restricted to the growth and development of the youngsters in the story. The adults also navigate occurrences which allow some of them to begin questioning their established views and understand, through seeing events from another person's perspective, that not everything is clear cut. Themes such as parentage, surrogacy, adoption and abortion are poignantly addressed, but for me, the central question threading itself throughout the novel is 'what makes someone a mother?' I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and recommend it highly. Thanks to Little, Brown Book Group UK and NetGalley for the ARC.
