Ask Me No Questions - Marina Budhos. Now she glances around nervously, as if she expects someone to tap us on the shoulders and tell us to leave. One. We drive as if in a dream. What if Canada turns us down? Abba sighs, wearily rubbing his eyes.

Originally published: New York : Atheneum Books for Young Readers, c2006. The lives of fourteen-year-old Nadira, her sister, and their parents are radically changed following the events of September 11, 2001, when being Muslim means being a suspected terrorist and their expired visas result in the arrest of Nadira's father when the family flees New York City for Canada.

com User, November 4, 2007. Marina Budhos's first YA novel is a moving story about nation, identity, patriotism, and what it means to be American in post 9-11 America. It is more than just the story of one family's struggle to stay afloat and remain "home" in the midst of crisis. Rather, it gives the experiences of an oft-invisible group of Americans a much-needed voice.

Ask Me No Questions, a novel - Deportation. For fourteen-year-old Nadira and eighteen-year-old Aisha, these are the words that define. Budhos hauntingly depicts a post-9/11 world where looking like the enemy can seem like a crime. Christian Science Monitor.

"You forget. You forget you don't really exist here, that this isn't your home."

Since emigrating from Bangladesh, fourteen-year-old Nadira and her family have been living in New York City on expired visas, hoping to realize their dream of becoming legal U.S. citizens. But after 9/11, everything changes. Suddenly being Muslim means you are dangerous -- a suspected terrorist.

When Nadira's father is arrested and detained at the U.S.-Canadian border, Nadira and her older sister, Aisha, are told to carry on as if everything is the same. The teachers at Flushing High don't ask any questions, but Aisha falls apart. Nothing matters to her anymore -- not even college.

It's up to Nadira to be the strong one and bring her family back together again.

My son had to read this book for school, this would be his first grade of the school year. He was struggling keeping interested in the book, so I read the book myself. I think the book was really good. Nadira of course became my favorite character. Her strength, love and respect for her family...... Wonderful.

This is a story that will get everyone thinking and analyzing American culture and beliefs. This Muslim family feels they need to seek asylum in Canada because they are in the U.S. illegally. Like many, they entered the country legally and just stayed beyond the expiration of their visas. This story of how many people live in this country is both sad and hopeful throughout. It is certainly a read I recommend to all middle and high school age students.

First let me say I loved the premise of this book, and was excited about it once I read the synopsis on the back. However, I was sorely disappointed. The book lacks consistent character development, the plot is predictable and it does not come close to addressing the larger social issues that it could, given the subject matter. I found myself decidedly unsympathetic towards the protagonist and disinterested in the resolution/outcome by the middle of the book, which is never a good sign. Perhaps I had too many expectations going into reading the book.

I gave it a three star rating, because it wasn't completely awful. The writing is fine, and it is a quick read. I could see lower-level Young Adult readers enjoying it and will keep the copy I have for my classroom library.

This book is amazing and tells the story of a family from Bangladesh who gets a tourist visa to America and ends up staying- illegally. However after 9/11 our country started caring about who lived in our country and made men from certain countries register with the government.

This book has allowed me to think about things from another's point of view and re-think my opinion on illegal immigration (which I am still thinking about). I think it's great that Marina Budhos writes a novel like this to allow young adults to think critically about this hot topic and form their own opinions on it. Amazing class discussions could come of this book if used in a classroom setting!!!
