BOOK: The Ask and the Answer by Patrick Ness

The Ask and the Answer by Patrick Ness, 522 pages

It's the End of the World Challenge; 2nds Challenge; Young Adult Challenge

Very dark and quite violent; but war always is.
Middle book of Chaos Walking Trilogy, after The Knife of Never Letting Go.

Todd and Viola have been separated and are working on opposite sides of the warring factions, which just goes to show that you cannot judge a person for the role they might play in a war. There are reasons why each person does what they have to do to survive can't be known.

Young adult book that reads very quick, due to the cliff-hanging, page-turning, action-packed plot, and characters that are growing and maturing, the kind of characters you cheer for and hope that all will turn out alright.

Next in series: Monsters of Men, I'm first in line once my library gets it. It's on order right now.
