#REVIEW - How to Start A Fire by Lisa Lutz


From a bestselling writer, a story of unexpected friendship-three women thrown together in college who grow to adulthood united and divided by secrets, lies, and a single night that shaped all of them

When UC Santa Cruz roommates Anna and Kate find passed-out Georgiana Leoni on a lawn one night, they wheel her to their dorm in a shopping cart. Twenty years later, they gather around a campfire on the lawn of a New England mansion. What happens in between-the web of wild adventures, unspoken jealousies, and sudden tragedies that alter the course of their lives-is charted with sharp wit and aching sadness in this meticulously constructed novel.

Anna, the de facto leader, is fearless and restless-moving fast to stay one step ahead of her demons. Quirky, contemplative Kate is a natural sidekick but a terrible wingman ("If you go home with him, might I suggest breathing through your mouth"). And then there's George: the most desired woman in any room, and the one most likely to leave with the worst man.

Shot through with the crackling dialogue, irresistible characters, and propulsive narrative drive that make Lutz's books so beloved, How to Start a Fire pulls us deep into Anna, Kate, and George's complicated bond and pays homage to the abiding, irrational love we share with the family we choose.

My Take:
5 STARS!!!

Women's Fiction
I SO enjoyed this extraordinary book in a non-stop, read it overnight, absolutely loved this book so I am giving it 5-STARS, EASILY! This is my first Lisa Lutz book, and it blew me away! I LOVED IT!!! If you like Women's Fiction, Chick-Lit or Literature/Fiction, you're going to LOVE this book!
This book takes us on a wonderful, fictional ride of three memorable women's lives who begin their friendship in college, and it continues well into their adulthood. I thoroughly LOVED several of the scenes especially in the beginning (and the rest of the book, as well) but especially when Anna, Kate and George all meet, and this is just the beginning of their friendship together! In some of the scenes I was laughing SO hard! Don't get me wrong, this book is not a slap-stick comedy, quite the opposite, but this author sure knows how to use humor well!
You definitely do NOT want to miss this book! It is well worth your time to lose yourself into another world getting lost in-between the pages of this book!
I would like to thank Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and NetGalley for the pure pleasure of being able to review this title for them!
