The Kids Are Gonna Ask by Gretchen Anthony

Release Date - July 28, 2020



Thomas and Savannah McClair haven't had a horrible childhood, but it's not been the best either. Raised by their single mom and her parents, they've been loved. Their mother's death has always weighed heavily, however. Now, they're almost 18 and questions arise as to who their father was.

Not even their grandmother knows his identity, but she's willing to let them dig into their mom's past. It's turned into a podcast that's fully sponsored. Unfortunately, the public's mixed reaction to their digging has them feeling the pains of public scrutiny. Is it invasive or understandable to seek out your birth parent?

While I liked the characters in The Kids Are Gonna Ask, some of the adults infuriated me. You'll see what I mean. The plot moves along at a great pace and keeps your interest from the very first page. I didn't find any shocking plot twists in it, and it didn't go into the direction I thought it might at first. It was simply an absorbing, entertaining story about sudden stardom, families, and public opinion.
