Publisher's Summary

Family ties are tested and transformed in the new novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author of Waiting to Exhale and How Stella Got Her Groove Back. With her wise, wry, and poignant novels of families and friendships - Waiting to Exhale, Getting to Happy, and A Day Late and a Dollar Shortamong them - Terry McMillan has touched millions of listeners.

Now, in her eighth novel, McMillan gives exuberant voice to characters who reveal how we live now - at least as lived in a racially diverse Los Angeles neighborhood.

Kaleidoscopic, fast-paced, and filled with McMillan's inimitable humor, Who Asked You? opens as Trinetta leaves her two young sons with her mother, Betty Jean, and promptly disappears. BJ, a trademark McMillan heroine, already has her hands full dealing with her other adult children, two opinionated sisters, an ill husband, and her own postponed dreams - all while holding down a job as a hotel maid. Her son Dexter is about to be paroled from prison; Quentin, the family success, can't be bothered to lend a hand; and taking care of two lively grandsons is the last thing BJ thinks she needs.

The drama unfolds through the perspectives of a rotating cast of characters, pitch-perfect, each playing a part, and full of surprises.

Who Asked You? casts an intimate look at the burdens and blessings of family and speaks to trusting your own judgment even when others don't agree. McMillan's signature voice and unforgettable characters bring universal issues to brilliant, vivid life.

    "AN ADDICTION"

    This was such an amazing book I hadn't gotten much sleep or hardly any work done for the last week. It has given me the idea to start a book club, reminding me how much I miss my favorite hobby. I hadn't read it the last cpl years because of such a hectic life. But thanks to this story which reminded me to slow down and enjoy every day with those whom we love and never to hold grudges, life's too short! SUCH AN AMAZING READ

    "Book good,Narration bad!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend the book .


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I just do not understand why the voices of the narrators were not appropriate to the age and description of the character.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It was a good story . A bit cliche.
