No One Ever Asked: A Novel | Katie Ganshert
8 posts | 5 read | 19 to read
Challenging perceptions of discrimination and prejudice, this emotionally resonant drama for readers of Lisa Wingate and Jodi Picoult explores three different women navigating challenges in a changing school district--and in their lives. When an impoverished school district loses its accreditation and the affluent community of Crystal Ridge has no choice but to open their school doors, the lives of three very different women converge: Camille Gray--the wife of an executive, mother of three, long-standing PTA chairwoman and champion fundraiser--faced with a shocking discovery that threatens to tear her picture-perfect world apart at the seams. Jen Covington, the career nurse whose long, painful journey to motherhood finally resulted in adoption but she is struggling with a happily-ever-after so much harder than she anticipated. Twenty-two-year-old Anaya Jones--the first woman in her family to graduate college and a brand new teacher at Crystal Ridge's top elementary school, unprepared for the powder-keg situation she's stepped into. Tensions rise within and without, culminating in an unforeseen event that impacts them all. This story explores the implicit biases impacting American society, and asks the ultimate question: What does it mean to be human? Why are we so quick to put labels on each other and categorize people as "this" or "that", when such complexity exists in each person?

Fantastic book! Felt like a Liane Moriarity book. Good build up and conflicted characters.

So I was approved to read this on #netgalley and was so excited. I‘m still excited, but felt like such an idiot when I realized this book has already been published... in APRIL. However, why was no one talking about it? It‘s so good! Unfortunately, it‘s similar in style to Big Little Lies, but different enough where it‘s okay.

I highly recommend so far! #nooneeverasked

Reviewsbylola I have to admit, I rarely pay attention to the Netgalley release dates. 😬 This one sounds good! 1y
Hazel0303 I think you‘d like it @Reviewsbylola Big Little Lies was very good and it definitely had substance (domestic violence, bullying). This is kind of the same formula (again unfortunate and maybe why it doesn‘t have much (any?) hype.) However, the substance is race and socioeconomic background/stereotypes. Strong writing too. 1y

Megabooks Sad 😔 1y
Megabooks Interesting fact is that most Supreme Court decisions until the 80sish were unanimous. 1y
