Book Review: Little Fires Everywhere

I’m kind of a sucker for stories that start at the end, go back in time, then circle around again, like Little Big Man, It’s a Wonderful Life, and yes, of course, Somethin’ for Nothin’.  Little Fires Everywhere uses the technique to good effect in holding reader interest in the trials and tribulations of teenagers in Stepford-like Shaker Heights, which is mainly a set up for a fascinating study of motherhood, particularly biological vs. artificial, i.e., adoptive vs. surrogate.   (4 of 5 Stars)
