Little Broken Things by Nicole Baart


I received an ARC from Netgalley and Atria Books in exchange for an honest review. This did not affect my opinion in any way.

Quinn receives a cryptic text message from her estranged sister: “I have something for you”. Nora certainly does, as she drops a 6 year old girl into Quinn’s lap to take care of for an undetermined length of time.

This story covers a four day span of time and cuts between several character’s perspectives. The beginning and last quarter of the book are deeply engrossing, with a bit of slower pacing in the middle.

The characters are not all entirely likeable, but they do become much more developed throughout the novel.

Read this book if you enjoy domestic dramas, character studies of mother-child relationships, both conventional and unconventional. I did guess one of the twists fairly early on, but still found the ending of the book satisfying.

This book was published just a few days ago (November 21st, 2017) and is now available for purchase.
