First Chapter/First Paragraph ~ Teaser Tuesday – Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng

Happy Tuesday!

Today I am linking up with Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea who hosts a post every Tuesday to share the First Chapter/First Paragraph of the book you are currently reading.


I’m also once again joining The Purple Booker with Teaser Tuesday. It’s easy to join – just grab your current read, open it to a random page, and share two teaser sentences being careful not to include any spoilers.


First Chapter/First Paragraph

Chapter 1

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. All spring the gossip had been about little Mirabelle McCullough – or, depending which side you were on, May Ling Chow – and now, at last, there was something new and sensational to discuss.
(this is just part of the first paragraph, it’s quite long and I don’t want to give too much away)

Teaser Tuesday 

Because they did not need the money from the house, it was the kind of tenant that mattered to Mrs. Richardson. She wanted to feel that she was doing good with it.

Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng

Goodreads Synopsis

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 Richardson’s. 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 Richardson’s 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.
