Review: No One Ever Asked by Katie Ganshert
Blurb (from Amazon):
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?
No One Ever Asked is a really emotional read dealing with heavy situations and sensitive issues that many could connect with. Katie Ganshert definitely has the talent of crafting a novel that are relatable. This one is so beautifully written. The characters are so likeable characters and I enjoyed spending time with them. This is one of those books that will make all readers think and see the perspective of others.
I give No One Ever Asked 5 plus stars and highly recommend it.
I received this book from the author but was not required to write a review. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
