Super fun and quick read! I found the friendship between the two women very odd, but realizing it was written by a man makes more sense now. But Lillian‘s relationship with the kids was heart-warming!

Found a couple of used bookstores near my parents and couldn't resist a mini book haul. Although I have no idea how I'm going to fit them in my suitcase to come home 😅

This was a really cute audiobook, and the narrator did a fabulous job. This was a feel good listen.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This was my first Kevin Wilson book and it was really quirky and charming with surprising heart. I remember being about 60 pages in and wondering if I‘m supposed to like the main character. I‘m definitely interested in reading more of Wilson‘s books if they‘re anything like this.

I LOVED this book and can‘t recommend it enough. It makes you think about parenting, friendships, and just how much we can handle from life. There‘s lots of great critical commentary about class, and it‘s just a joy to see what the protagonist prioritizes. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

BarbaraBB Such a fun read! 7mo

Book has huge heart & such well-drawn, memorable characters. Quirky & SO funny, w/ passages of great beauty. 28-yr-old Lillian is struggling when her friend Madison asks her to be nanny for her 10-yr-old twins on the grounds of her mansion. The catch: the kids spontaneously combust when upset. Friendship, class, power, competition, parenting, vulnerability & willful strength of children, love, stability, finding family. Badass tenderness. 2019

What else could you do
but pretend that you didn‘t know
that was possible in this world?

you ride it out and you don't let it hurt you
then there's this stretch of time
so calm and perfect
that's what was always worth waiting for

I sat on the porch, a perfect day
and watched them burn
Because I knew that when it was over
they would come right back to me

They didn't want to set the world on fire
They just wanted to be less alone in it

Second book I read in January of 2022 and it was so good! All I knew going in was a couple of kids would burst into flames when they got to overwhelmed with emotions, but boy was I not expecting all the rest.

This reminds me so much of how I felt in the first weeks after my daughter was born, that I was an imposter but that maybe if I pretended long enough, I would grow into this person. And I did. But now that she's almost 17, I realize that it was just a temporary thing anyway. Not that I stop being her mother, but that I stop being her world. It's a big ask, stepping into and then out of this intense role. Who came up with this idea, anyway?

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks It sucks!! My 27 year old is hard to deal… 😓 my 21 year old still likes me 9mo
kyraleseberg I relate so much. My daughter is 8 and gaining independence daily and I see how much this is a game of learning when to hold on and when to let go and it is crazy intense! 9mo

I rarely read books more than once, but this one I've now read twice in less than two weeks, once by myself and once out loud to my kids. I really enjoyed it both times, and my kids liked it, too, and not because of the swearing. (Or not *just* because of the swearing.) Wilson paints a vivid and truthful picture of what it's like to become a parent, no matter how you become one. I mostly made it through reading aloud without crying.

Nothing To See Here by Kevin Wilson. Book3 of 2021. The premise of this book was kind of out there, but the execution was on point and I throughly enjoyed this. This was my second novel by Kevin Wilson and I look forward to reading more.

Making good on my promise to read the tagged book aloud to my kids. They're loving it, as expected. I enjoy doing a variety of southern accents, none of which are likely authentic (I've chosen Kentucky relatives for Lillian and use Dolly Parton and high school friends as inspiration for Madison).

(Amaryllis because I wasn't sure what other photo to use. My boss from 20 years ago gave this to me (last week, not 20 years ago) and they're gorgeous.)

ImperfectCJ Actually, my boss is from Tennessee, and I suspect she's influenced my accents, too. 9mo

I listened to this on audio, but I might read it aloud to my kids. At 12 and 16, I think they'd get a kick out of it, and not just because of the swearing. There are lots of laugh-out-loud spots in this novel. I enjoy the relationship between Lillian and Madison and the evolution of Lillian's feelings about the children, and I relate to Lillian's feelings of trapped-ness in her mother's home and how being away makes the dysfunction stand out.

Short, dark humor, novel about a woman helping her childhood friend take care of her step children that catch fire when upset. I enjoyed it but it also wasn't one of my favorite reads. I didn't really contect with any of the characters.

I was pleasantly surprised with this book. It was genuine, funny, heartfelt and always teetering on the brink of being dark. The audio was great (and quick). Similar to House in the Cerulean Sea by the sweet, weird, sad and magical beauty of it all not so much by actual content. I will definitely be reading more from Wilson.

Mehso-so

The storyline of two kids who spontaneously catch on fire seems almost comical but Nothing to See here is anything but lighthearted. Families often break apart in hap-hazardous ways but so too do they come together that way. Plus, Wilson‘s characterization and narration of Lillian and Madison was simply a treat. They had such a sturdy realness to them that was neither cut-throat nor weak and wanting.

This was a quick read about a set of 10 year old kids who spontaneously combust into flames. The story itself is a sweet one when Lillian comes to take care of them for the summer. All three have had rough lives and they all learn to trust each each other and be there for one another. This is my book club‘s June pick.

A friend of mine recommended this memoir on audiobook, so I decided to dive into it this weekend. About 30 min in and children are spontaneously bursting into flames when they are upset. Either I‘ve mixed up the name of the book, or this is one helluva memoir...😂🤣😂

I thought the cover was being metaphorical 🤷‍♀️

One of the strangest books I‘ve ever read. The idea of children spontaneously combusting without getting hurt seemed kind of far-fetched but once you buy into the outlandish idea that this is what happens, it doesn't seem so crazy. They are very lovable characters and I found myself rooting for them soon after they were introduced in the narrative. It was actually a page-turner for me , but the ending was disappointing.

BookingitwithSandra I agree, the ending was disappointing. I Nothing to See Here, too. 😁

"Because I kept fucking up, because it seemed so hard not to fuck up, I lived a life where I had less than what I desired. So instead of wanting more, sometimes I just made myself want even less. Sometimes I made myself believe that I wanted nothing, not even food or air. And if I wanted nothing, I'd just turn into a ghost. And that would be the end of it."

I read this book back in December 2019 and when I checked it out from the library the person at the circulation desk laughed when she saw the cover...I thought that was a good sign! This was a funny but also touching story about #foundfamilies featuring children who self combust and the slacker who comes to love them. 😀

So I get it, what all the hype was about regarding this Audiobook. Wow the narrator was phenomenal! Multiple voices for multiple characters that really carried there own and a unique story about making connections in the most unlikely of ways and allowing others into your life even if it isn't perfect. Even if you are not a perfect person.

I loved this story it was so heartwarming.
