Rank #6: Little Fires Everywhere Part 2 (Episode Two)

Podcast cover
Read more

Keena and Sara discuss their opinions on Little Fires Everywhere and provide their insight. Growing up in a Midwest suburb similar to Shaker Heights, we share our perspectives on how Celeste Ng's novel describes family, growing up, culture and mother-daughter relationships. This is part two of the conversation on Little Fires Everywhere.

Sara is a rising junior studying Marketing and English at Northeastern University in Boston. My favorite books include YA novels that take place in the midwest and books with complex female characters.  I just finished the first draft of my YA Novel, and plan on working in New York City in a publishing firm with Keena in the future.

Keena is a rising junior studying Marketing and Creative Writing at Indiana University. She is a bubbly and positive aspiring writer with a talent for poetry and descriptive language. She really enjoys the To All the Boys book trilogy and hopes to work in New York City one day in the publishing industry.

*disclaimer both descriptions were written by Sara because I was in charge of uploading this episode
