In this poignant and humorous novel, twin siblings become a national phenomenon when they launch a podcast to find the biological father they never knew.
"This journey is ours to start. And we hope you'll come with us--all the way to the end."
Thomas and Savannah McClair aren't like normal teenagers. Following the sudden passing of their mother, the twins were raised in their eccentric grandmother Maggie's household. Fiercely curious and wildly creative, the twins become determined to learn a missing piece of their story, as well as their mother's: The identity of their biological father. And when their impassioned mission goes viral, a producer named Sam Tamblin offers them a platform they never would have dreamed of--a fully sponsored podcast called The Kids Are Gonna Ask.
To find their lost father, Thomas and Savannah begin interviewing people from their mother's past, discovering a history that brings them closer to the answers they're looking for. To their shock, the podcast ignites in popularity when one of the people they interview eviscerates them on national radio for violating their biological father's privacy rights. As the controversy mounts, Thomas and Savannah find themselves at the center of a national debate they never asked for--but nothing compares to the mayhem that ensues when they find him.
Cleverly constructed, emotionally perceptive, and sharply funny, The Kids Are Gonna Ask is a rollicking coming-of-age story and a moving exploration of all the ways we can go from lost to found.
