"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..." - Meghan Cox Gurdon 09/11/2009

"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." 01/01/2010
