Nothing to See Here by Kevin Wilson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I’d seen it on a few top-10 lists, and was intrigued by the praise and the premise. It is immediately engaging with a funny, likeable hero, Lillian, who, as in all good novels, has a journey to make over the course of the book, entrusted out of the blue by her oldest, best friend and frenemy, Madeleine, to take care of some young stepchildren who happen to spontaneously combust when they are upset or angry. The book is not complex nor literary; it’s inventive, funny and original.
