What’s the best way to forget your own family dysfunction? Dive into someone else’s. Le duh.
This book — Ask Again, Yes by Mary Beth Keane — is about two neighboring families whose lives become entwined by one tragic incident. All of the characters are so very lovable — even the one who commits the awful accident. And that’s a feat!
You will find yourself cheering on the underdog and learning that mental health is a health crisis which warrants more attention today more than ever.
So curl up to this book and thank me later. I haven’t read a tale this enthralling in a long time.
