    Deeply Thought Provoking!

    "Be the change where you're at." Anaya Jones is a new hire at a predominantly white upper class elementary school. Determined to make the best of a given opportunity, she struggles to push aside her own fears and misconceptions so that she can meet the needs of her students, whose parents are disgruntled about the forced integration of ethnically diverse students from a failed lower class school district. Anaya is black. Jen Covington and her husband have just adopted a little girl from Liberia. Feeling overwhelmed with the complexities of instant parenthood, Jen fights feelings of despondency and inadequacy when Jubilee has a difficult time adjusting to her new life. Jen and Nick are white. Camille Gray is an active member of her community, pretending that all is right in her world when nothing could be further from the truth. After her three children are thrust into racially tense circumstances as a result of regional integration, her responses vary from what she thinks she is "supposed" to say, to what she actually believes she needs to say. All three women's lives converge in unexpected ways as normalcy is reconstructed along the path to mutual respect. "No one ever asked" their opinion in the beginning, but in the end, they find that the truth really can set them free. Read along as Katie Ganshert deftly navigates the shark infested waters of equality, diversity, and expectancy within the chapters of this deeply inspiring story. I received a copy of this novel from the author and publisher. The opinions stated are entirely my own.

    A powerful story of fear and freedom

    Just when I think I know my favorite Katie Ganshert novel, she releases another one. And this might be her best yet. Based on true events, No One Ever Asked confronts a myriad of issues from the harsh realities of racism and the increased segregation of our school system to family relationships and transracial adoptions. This is a beautiful story of three very different women and the way their lives intersect for the better. Jen’s adoption struggles were eye-opening and inspiring. Camille’s family issues were realistic and changed my perception of her throughout the book. But Anaya’s story was my favorite. I loved how strong and caring she was and loved being able to see life through her eyes, especially the prejudices inherent in our society. However, what amazed me the most in this book was the complexity of each storyline. Their stories are so well-developed that Anaya, Camille, and Jen each could have their own book. But, instead of their stories suffering from being shared, their stories beautifully intersect and enrich one another, creating a compelling picture of a divided community on its way to healing. Life doesn’t give us one struggle at a time and each woman faced multiple problems simultaneously throughout the book. In a world where even contemporary fiction has a tendency to become fantasy, it is always refreshing to meet characters that struggle. Characters that have flaws but don’t let their flaws define them. Characters that inspire you to persevere and believe and “be the change where you’re at.” And that’s exactly what I get every time I read one of Katie Ganshert’s novels. I loved this story and, as with most of her novels, I cried at the end. Because at its core, it’s a story of broken people becoming whole and completely free in Christ. We cannot escape the past, but through Christ, we can all experience freedom.

    No One Ever Asked was a bit difficult for me to really get into. The main characters take time to cross paths. However, all the details and background before their encounter with each other are absolutely necessary, so I made my peace with it but I wish it could’ve been done in a simpler and shorter way. Readers see all sides and perspectives surrounding the racism issue when it concerns school kids. We see from the eyes of those who are in the receiving end as well as those who are giving it out even without realising that’s what they’re doing. Kids of different coloured skins could go to the same class, same school, receive the same lessons from the same teacher and have absolutely different lives. The coloured have to give it everything they’ve got and more to disprove stereotypes; They could do exactly the same thing as white-skinned people but still come off as the bad guys. Readers get to understand that they don’t have the luxury to stand up for themselves without coming off as a threat. However, at the same time, they have to speak louder in order to be heard. It’s forever a game of tug-o-war where there’s no winning. Despite the initial snail-pace that was totally on me, I wholeheartedly loved No One Ever Asked. Katie Ganshert’s writing is powerful, enlightening, and No One Ever Asked is a truly worthwhile piece of fiction that is recording the working progress of humanity concerning the racism affair.
