This collection of seven short stories is entertaining and thought-provoking. The title comes from one of my favourite stories in the anthology, but the theme of “asking” prevails throughout.
Each of the stories has its own characters and circumstances, yet each features a young (in one instance very young) man on the verge of personal discovery. The angst of the teenage boy searching for love - perhaps his first love, or even his father’s love - is a unifying theme which will resonate with both young adults and adults.
