Nothing to See Here, by Kevin Wilson.
‘Come and meet Bessie and Roland, Lil, see what you think’.
Lilian has never been able to resist the siren call of her best and only friend and reluctantly embarks on the weirdest adventure of her life so far, as she discovers that Bessie and Roland are Madison and Jasper’s shameful secret, a secret that would destroy Jasper’s political aspirations permanently if it were revealed.
For Bessie and Roland ignite.
Yes, they internally combust. If they get upset, angry or frightened they start to burn, real flames that don’t harm them, but play havoc with the furniture, not to mention creating unnecessary attention from the fire department: they must be kept the absolute opposite of upset, and Lilian is just the person for the job.
Kevin Wilson has produced a fantasy for the bizarre times in which we live. All his characters, especially the heroic Lilian, are larger than life, as they must be to convince the reader to believe. His story is hugely funny but the humour leavens the difficulty of trying to keep a family together these days – especially a new one.
Yep, nothing to see here guys, unless you turn the pages. This is a great book. SIX STARS.
