"THE ASK AND THE ANSWER is one of those books you probably shouldn't give an adolescent at bedtime unless you're prepared for him to stay up reading until dawn....This gripping story of two young people fighting to stay true to themselves and each other under terrible circumstances does contain some upsetting scenes....But those scenes do not feel gratuitous, for they are presented in the service of Mr. Ness's stunningly clear depiction of the moral wreckage of civil war..."
"Their quest to reunite will keep readers focused on their relationship and moral motivation in this graphically violent and dystopian world...Science fiction lovers will be looking for the next installment in this fast-paced and imaginative series."
From the Publisher
Annotation The second book in the thrilling Chaos Walking series finds Todd and Viola in a terrible situation that is seemingly insurmountable. Captured by the vile Mayor Prentiss, having no idea if Viola is even living, Todd must go along with his jailors to keep Viola safe, just in case. But there is hope brewing, in the name of the mysterious Answer. What is it, and is there any hope at all? This gripping read follows THE KNIFE OF NEVER LETTING GO. Selected by Publishers Weekly as one of the Best Children's Books of 2009.
