Nothing to See Here by Kevin Wilson

Nothing to see here? Well, think again. For one thing, the adorable twins that Lillian agrees to watch over for a while, combust quite spontaneously. Second, the rudderless Lillian doesn’t quite know what she’s gotten herself into. Fortunately she is a decent human being and there’s nobody quite like kids to sniff out the good from the bad. This is a layered feel-good book about class, realizing your true bearings, and above all, finding allies in the unlikeliest of places. Too often kids in novels come across as overly precocious mini-adults. Wilson’s creations are authentic and huggable, fire and all.
