MOTIVATION for READING: It’s that time of year…
WHAT’s it ABOUT: OK, now this is the fun one! A non-motivated 28-yo is invited to a friend’s house and given an odd opportunity – take care of the friend’s stepkids, keep them out of sight from the press, and ensure they don’t set anything on fire. Because these two kids are fire children. They can burst into flame when anxious or upset.
THOUGHTS: I enjoyed this odd tale and its odd apathetic narrator who doesn’t know anything about children. It had a few laugh out loud moments and was heart-warming in the end.
RATING: I might have rated it four slices of pie.,but it is rounded up from 3 1/2.
