“I can’t believe how good this book is.... It’s wholly original. It’s also perfect.... Wilson writes with such a light touch.... The brilliance of the novel [is] that it distracts you with these weirdo characters and mesmerizing and funny sentences and then hits you in a way you didn’t see coming. You’re laughing so hard you don’t even realize that you’ve suddenly caught fire.” —Taffy Brodesser-Akner, New York Times Book Review

Kevin Wilson’s best book yet—a moving and uproarious novel about a woman who finds meaning in her life when she begins caring for two children with remarkable and disturbing abilities.

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?

With white-hot wit and a big, tender heart, Kevin Wilson has written his best book yet—a most unusual story of parental love.

    The story seemed simple at first but there were so many twists & turns built into it. It was funny, entertaining and the characters were well described. The narration was fantastic and made it very enjoyable to listen to.

    Different kind of story line yet very interesting. Narrator rocked it from beginning to end!

  • Janet G.

    Great story! Fantastic narrator! If I had read this story I would have rated it an 8 …but, the narrator makes this story a 10 for sure!

  • Anjel L.

    This story was so fun, heartbreaking, and moving. Everything I could have wanted from a quick read. The narrator made the characters come to life with her voice acting. Truly a great listen.

    This book was great but what made it awesome was the narration. Marin Ireland captured each character’s distinct personality and attitudes with such deftness it was not just a book being read but wonderful acting. I am so glad I chose to listen to this book instead of reading it myself.

    Quirky, different, fun book. Narration is fabulous.

    Weird in the best way. Not the type of novel I would normally be disposed to read, but all of the great reviews and recommendations made me curious. Very fine narration. I was caught off-guard when the humour occasionally drifted into great tenderness.

    I loved everything about the story, it’s sincere and blunt protagonist, the truly creative and original plot, the humanity and humor, so light and fun and still meaningful and important. I can’t wait for this author’s next book!

  • Reina H.

    Such a great book. I loved the characters and the ending. I would highly recommend this book I enjoyed every page!

  • Michael S.

    Both laugh-out-loud funny and deeply touching, this is a disarmingly good story, wonderfully read by Marin Ireland. Her portrayals of the kids are especially funny and poignant.
