The tour of “Best of 2017” lists continued with Little Fires Everywhere. The title is justified in the first chapter as we find literal little files all over a house. Yet, the continued reading of the book builds layer after layer onto the plot of metaphorical fires building in the lives of two very different families.

I’m drawn to fiction with well developed characters. While a few were left out, this book was full of them.
