A New York Times Bestseller - A Read with Jenna Today Show Book Club Pick

Named a Best Book of the Year by The New York Times Book Review, The Washington Post, People, Entertainment Weekly, USA Today, TIME, The A.V. Club, Buzzfeed, and PopSugar

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, author of Fleishman is in Trouble, New York Times Book Review

   What a Fun Read!
SO unique. And one laugh after another... this is one of the best books I've ever been given. Hubby got it right! With such a bizarre storyline, how much I enjoyed it was a wonderful surprise.
   Fun book but not just fluff
She gave it to her daughter-in-law for Christmas. She said she had it on her list to read, so I made a hit. Loved the unusual plot, and the characters were fun and well developed, Morgenthau said. It was first recommended to me by a book club member. It was great to be back with Mr. D'Antonio again, said Gillian.
   Memorable, fun, poignant and relevant book
This is a fantastically funny, touching book, Simon says. The curse words are perfect, Rowling said. This is a short read, very creative, not to far off the mark when it comes to understanding what kids do and don't need, Mr. Rule told The Age. What are books for if not to push us to use our imagination to love this crazy world?
   Weird and interesting
This is a trippy and unexpected type of story, Byrne said. It started out as I expected, sort of as I call it, A Snack Novel. It still is a snack novel, but it has enough weird stuff thrown in to make it more interesting than the average bear.
   Could have been weird, but it wasn't
It's just that this book could have gone a lot worse. It's just that they put it out there: "Fire kids." It's just that weird, right? It was just that they were setting fire to paper, he said. It was a metaphor for their otherness, the fire said. A class by themselves. A truly awesome book.
   Unique, entertaining story
I've read every book except for this one. You'll find yourself rooting for the main character, Lillian, who has had tough breaks throughout her life but suddenly finds herself caring for two kids with special needs. The dynamic between the two leads will leave you guessing what their true intentions are and the Southern backdrop makes the story all the more amusing.
   Strange but good book
This book is very well written and I enjoyed reading it. I'll miss the characters most - Bessie and Roland. Even though they may be resilient, children need unconditional love to thrive, he said. It also touches on how giving unconditional love and all that entails to someone will make life meaningful and worthwhile, Beckham said.
   Unbelievable Premise; Relatable Themes
To read this book you must suspend an enormous amount of disbelief, but it is actually not that hard. Many of the plot lines were very relatable, Crowe said. Feeling inadequate, desperate, wanting to belong, but not feeling confident enough to do it. This was a wonderful story of unlikely connections, Raymond said.
   Moving, knowing , and wonderfully weird
Feeling so happy, I was surprised how quickly I just accepted the bizarre premise that the writer had created, but the writing is so good I just slid into Wilson's world and hung on. I fell in love with Lillian immediately, Mr. Dhaliwal said. In "The Prince's Diaries," Elizabeth is shown falling in love with her first husband, Robert.
   A Steady Blaze
It's charming, funny, relatable, and altogether fantastic. The setting and the characters are perfect, he said. The story keeps you just at the surface of comprehension, so it's almost like reading through a dream. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good read late Spring or early Summer.
