Novelist Kevin Wilson is known for crafting stories about everyday family dramas that inject odd, quirky, or bizarre elements with often surprising effects.  Nothing to See Here is a moving, funny novel about a woman who finds meaning in her life when she begins caring for her long lost friend’s family.  Lillian and Madison were inseparable roommates at their elite boarding school until Lillian was expelled and they have barely spoken since.  When Lillian gets a letter from Madison pleading for her to be caretaker to her twin step-children, Lillian accepts as an escape from her disappointing dead-end life.  The twist is that Madison's twin step-children spontaneously erupt into flames when stressed or agitated. Surprised by her own ingenuity yet unaccustomed to the intense feelings of protectiveness she feels for them, Lillian begins to wonder whether she needs these strange children as much as they need her.  This brisk page-turner is a timely family fable that explores the challenges of childrearing and the depths of parental love. Come share your thoughts and questions in this informal yet lively book discussion.
