Little Fires Everywhere

Soon to be a TV miniseries by Reese Witherspoon, this story was gripping. I especially related to it as a Chinese, transracial adoptee.

This book accurately depicted my struggles with identifying as Chinese American and how I view family. It will force the general reader to question those same ideas. What is family? Is it worth losing your cultural identity?

The book was triggering for me at times, and I would caution adoptees (especially transracial adoptees) to know what topics are discussed before diving right in. While adoption and cultural identity are intriguing plot lines for most, the book had me facing some of my most internal traumas.

It is beautifully written and you will not be able to put it down.

I HIGHLY recommend it.
