Go Ahead, Ask Me by Billy Merrell and Nico Medina

Do you ever feel as if you don't truly know someone? Do you want a good conversation starter? Or are you just looking for some way to pass the time with a bunch of friends? Go Ahead, Ask Me is the answer all of the above, a book packed with 500 questions, ranging from silly and superficial to funny to thought provoking that is sure to elicit plenty of laughs and some surprising answers.

I recently brought this book with me to a sleepover with three of my close friends and we spent nearly the entire evening with it, opening it at random places or paging through from the beginning, bouncing questions off of each other. Not only did it keep us entertained for hours (literally), it sparked conversations that we wouldn't have had otherwise. There are a lot of hilarious questions that were fun to answer, there were a few questions about sex that we skipped, and some serious ones that we took some time to think about it. It was an enjoyable night, and we were all a bit sad when we found more questions we'd already answered than not. The general consensus: this book is coming to the lunch table once school starts!

Cover Comments: I like the size of this book, it's small and perfect for stashing nearly anywhere and then whipping out at a moment's notice. The cover is neat, I like the graphics and colors a lot (it looks even better in person). The whole style of the book is very fun!
