Very good read. Deals w/several social issues....desegregation of schools, racism, separation, biracial adoption, harassment, a shooting .... All topics handled well, and a very well resolved, satisfying ending. A very timely and timeless read.
Admirable topic, handled extraordinarily well by the author. The thoughts and emotions of the main characters come across in a very realistic manner. There is hope in the end as we see their growth and changes. I intend to purchase this book in order to re-read and loan to friends.
When I sat down to read No One Ever Asked, I didn't know that comparisons were already being drawn between it and Jodi Picoult's Small Great Things. But having suffered through the Small Great Things audiobook, my mind immediately went back to it with this read.
Thankfully ... I enjoyed No One Ever Asked much, much, much more. While I occasionally struggled to keep track of which character was which, I eventually got it down. Both plot and character development were spot on, particularly impressive between three points of view! Further, NOEA proves that you don't need bad language or steamy content to tell a good story.
Ganshert doesn't shy away from the very-present reality and toughness of race in America. But, she -- and the book -- show hope in a God that can, does, and will work amidst these situations.
NOEA is rooted in true stories and chock-full of research. Ganshert obviously did her homework, and the story shows it. While NOEA may not be an easy read, it's a necessary one. I know it to already be one of my top reads of 2018. Strongly recommended for both the story itself and the insight it lends into race today.
I received a free copy of the book from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
