Book Review

(by- Linda )

When I first read the jacket cover of this book, I was skeptical. It's not my usual genre, but it came highly recommended by a reliable friend, so I decided to give it a try. I was surprised how much I liked it; it was quirky, funny, and a welcome change from my usual reading choices.

Lillian leaves her lackluster life to help out a long lost childhood friend take care of her two stepchildren. However, there's a glitch; the children are combustible, which means they burst into flames when they get upset or stressed.

The premise is far fetched, but the author delivers a creative and touching story about friendship, self discovery, and the power of love. All the characters have plenty of baggage which easily allows you to become invested in their outcomes. Although this is a quick read, there's plenty to discuss for Book Clubs. I enjoyed this book very much.
