Nothing to See Here
Nothing to See Here, Kevin Wilson presents us with twin ten-year-olds whose uniqueness is expressed when they spontaneously burst into flames. While the twins are unharmed when this happens, there can be collateral damage. Stepmother Madison hires an acquaintance from school, Lillian, to care for the twins. Lillian comes from poverty and Madison from privilege. As Lillian narrates this story, we laugh and enjoy Wilson’s finely crafted prose. We begin to understand the friendship between Madison and Lillian and reflect on the responsibilities we take on when we care for others. Readers who appreciate wacky and finely written literary fiction, rooted in deep understanding of human nature are those most likely to enjoy this imaginative and insightful novel.
