Joanellen Hurley | 1 comments I was browsing this book at Barnes and Noble last month but don’t recall the author and title. Some details I remember are that the little girl gets overstimulated easily and mother has anxieties about her socialization with peers and adjustment to school. She does have a play date but the other girl isn’t too friendly. Very vivid scene at birthday party because the birthday girl unexpectedly opens gifts in front of others and the child from Liberia has a bad tantrum.

No One Ever Asked by Katie Ganshert? Some Goodreads reviewers say, "Jen, the career nurse who recently, after a 3-year wait, adopted a little girl (7-year-old Jubilee) from Liberia but never realized how hard the adjustment would be." | "Jen is trying to fit into this picture-perfect community but struggles with her Liberian-born daughter and her emotional outbursts."
