Nothing to See Here

 Nothing to See Here 

Author: Kevin Wilson

Narrator: Marin Ireland

Publisher: Harper Audio

Year: 2019


I bought this audiobook for two reasons: 1. I loved the cover. 2. It was on sale. I had no idea what it was about when I started listening to it. And oh, what a fun surprise this book turned out to be! 

Madison, wife of a wealthy US senator, asks her former best friend Lillian to become caretaker for her twin stepchildren when the children move in with Madison and her husband. There’s a catch- the children catch on fire. Yep, fire children. They can spontaneously combust usually when they get angry or upset. 

This seems like a such a weird premise for a story, but that’s the heart of the story. It celebrates weirdness. Lillian and Madison became friends because they realized they could totally be themselves together without any judgement. And Lilian brings that attitude when she begins caring for the fire children. She accepts them for what they are and then loves them for who they are. 

This is one of my favorite books I’ve read this year. It’s just a delight! And Marin Ireland’s narration is spot on!
