Bestselling Writer Shares Text Exchange Between Her And Her Mom—And It's Too Relatable
4 months ago

You may have heard of Celeste Ng. She is a novelist and writer whose first book, Everything I Never Told You, was a best-seller that also won Amazon Book of the Year. In her debut novel, she pulled a lot from her own personal experience with racism in the United States to write a rich thriller set in the 1970s in Ohio. Naturally, her second novel has been much anticipated, and on September 17th, 2017, Little Fires Everywhere finally landed. A description of the book from Good Reads says,

"In Shaker Heights, a placid, progressive suburb of Cleveland, everything is meticulously planned – from the layout of the winding roads, to the colours 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 principal is playing by the rules.
Enter Mia Warren – an enigmatic artist and single mother – who arrives in this idyllic bubble with her teenage daughter Pearl, and rents a house from the Richardsons. Soon Mia and Pearl become more than just tenants: all four Richardson children are drawn to the alluring mother-daughter pair. But Mia carries with her a mysterious past, and a disregard for the rules that threatens to upend this carefully ordered community."

The book was an immediate hit and is now number four on the New York Times best-seller list. However, when Celeste Ng decided to share the exciting news with her mother this Wednesday, let's just say she didn't get the reaction she might've hoped for.

And hoped that the tweet wouldn't find its way back to her...

These two knew the truth...

While these three had their own, um, 'special' mother-child experiences:

Some tried to comfort Celeste...

But Celeste cleared it up...

Then she regaled us with this tale...

To which Rumaan chimed back in and said...

And Sarah said what we all know to be true...

Maybe she won't think about brunch if you hit number one? Maybe?
