Audiobook performed by Marin Ireland.

“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.

"This book probably gained A LOT from having been turned into an audiobook, and having been read by Marin Ireland. It is not brilliant writing, it is not even good writing, in terms of literature, but it is an entertaining story. Its main character is not attractive, is hard to identify with, is not particularly interesting, has no inner life, really, is entirely lacking in content (has no beliefs, no desires, no dreams, no hopes, no complexity, is only a shell of a person with a bad mom, a bad job, and a bad incident when she was 16)... but, read out loud, she sounds more interesting than she is even though she is merely the channel through which the story takes place. This sounds like a negative review, but it isn't, because the story is VERY ENTERTAINING. And fiction that is meant to entertain must have entertaining stories. If you want fiction that is more than mere entertainment, this is not for you."

  • “Narrator Marin Ireland flawlessly introduces listeners to Lillian and Madison…Drawing from a seemingly endless supply of character voices, Ireland immerses listeners in this magical yet weird family, exquisitely capturing every unusual layer of the story. With an amazing variety of timbres and an assortment of Southern accents, Ireland confidently gives each character—from quirky Roland and Bessie to acerbic Lillian—a memorable voice. Ireland and Wilson leave a lasting impression and provide a thoroughly entertaining experience. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”

    " Nothing to See Here is an entertaining story that talks about acceptance and how outsiders can be a part of a family. Lillian is hired by her best-friend to be a nanny to her best friend's step-children while also keeping them hidden to further the best friend's husband's political career. The only problem is that these children are not ordinary children. Anytime they become upset or angry, they burst into flames. This is a fun, entertaining read that flowed well and kept me entertained. The narrator does a great job, as well. "
