Description

“Lillian and Madison were unlikely roommates and yet inseparable friends at their elite boarding school. But then Lillian had to leave the school unexpectedly in the wake of a scandal and they’ve barely spoken since. Until now, when Lillian gets a letter from Madison pleading for her help.

Madison’s twin stepkids are moving in with her family and she wants Lillian to be their caretaker. However, there’s a catch: the twins spontaneously combust when they get agitated, flames igniting from their skin in a startling but beautiful way. Lillian is convinced Madison is pulling her leg, but it’s the truth.

Thinking of her dead-end life at home, the life that has consistently disappointed her, Lillian figures she has nothing to lose. Over the course of one humid, demanding summer, Lillian and the twins learn to trust each other–and stay cool–while also staying out of the way of Madison’s buttoned-up politician husband. Surprised by her own ingenuity yet unused to the intense feelings of protectiveness she feels for them, Lillian ultimately begins to accept that she needs these strange children as much as they need her–urgently and fiercely. Couldn’t this be the start of the amazing life she’d always hoped for?”

    I needed a light read after a heavy classic, so I grabbed this Book-of-the-Month pick off my sagging TBR shelf.

    My expectations were low — I mean, how much was I really going to enjoy a story about a nanny who takes care of two kids who spontaneously combust when they get miffed???

    Just goes to show you…you just never know about a book until you actually read a book.

    Kevin Wilson weaves a magically realistic tale that I truly enjoyed. Although it dealt with pretty heavy emotional issues, it wasn’t a depressing or laborious read. I totally connected with Lillian, the nanny, main character, and narrator—she is intelligent, sassy and loving, just like I like ’em. And, best of all, it wasn’t until the last couple of pages that I was confident about the outcome.

    If you’re looking for a light, but meaningful, read, definitely give this one a try!
