I powered through Ask Again, Yes by Mary Beth Keane so I could leave it with our vacation hosts. This wasn’t a hard task because it was such a good book, but we did so many fun activities while at said vacation that there wasn’t much time for reading! This is the story of two neighbor families and the tragedy that comes between them even as the children are best friends through it. I enjoyed this one, but felt that the characters weren’t elucidated enough, or I didn’t feel like I knew them well enough. However, I liked the development of the characters’ lives over time and the general premise of this one. It’s worth picking up.
