Why did I love this book?
This book is near-perfect, probably in part because it’s surprisingly so. I didn’t intend to love this book. But with the insistence of a very discerning book nerd friend, I decided to at least try. This fun story follows two quirky kids who burst into flames when they get upset; and their newly appointed caretaker whose job becomes to contain them. Although naturally, it becomes about so much more. I loved it so much I’ve now become the one insisting everyone else pick it up, too. I haven’t had a disappointed reader yet.
