Asking for Evidence-The Overview

Evidence-of-things-not-seenASKING FOR EVIDENCE: Some Questions & Some Answers

Some Questions

Readers have called my young adult novel Evidence of Things Not Seen “edgy” and had a lot of questions about the characters profiled there.  Some of those questions have been, well, edgy themselves.  With only a chapter spent with each, readers fiercely want to hold the characters accountable and make sure they get the respect they deserve.

Look for pointed questions to each of the characters here. Maybe you yourself can help answer some of them.  If you prefer to print all the questions, download a PDF here.

Some Answers

In the pages of Evidence, many readers see themselves or their friends in the characters.  Some of things they see about themselves and others make them curious, some scare them, and some offer hope.  Each set of questions is followed by some websites and organizations where you might get answers.  I call them “resources” for lack of a better name.  But they could also be called a lifeline, a revelation, or evidence of things not seen.  Don’t be afraid to look for answers.

The Questions & Answers were written by fellow author Carrie Gordon Watson.  She is a 29-year veteran high school teacher, conflict resolution counselor, and co-founder of the at-risk youth art engagement program, Never Counted Out.  Basically you can trust her and her books QUAD and Ascending the Boneyard (coming in 2016).
