Ask the Passengers by A.S. King

Ratings: (0)|Views: 12,872|Likes:
Astrid Jones desperately wants to confide in someone, but her mother's pushiness and her father's lack of interest tell her they're the last people she can trust. Instead, Astrid spends hours lying on the backyard picnic table watching airplanes fly overhead. She doesn't know the passengers inside, but they're the only people who won't judge her when she asks them her most personal questions . . . like what it means that she's falling in love with a girl.

As her secret relationship becomes more intense and her friends demand answers, Astrid has nowhere left to turn. She can't share the truth with anyone except the people at thirty thousand feet, and they don't even know she's there. But little does Astrid know just how much even the tiniest connection will affect these strangers' lives--and her own--for the better.

In this truly original portrayal of a girl struggling to break free of society's definitions, Printz Honor author A.S. King asks readers to question everything--and offers hope to those who will never stop seeking real love.

Maybe they’ll know what to do with it. Maybe it’ll make them happy. Maybe they’ll need it.Her mother doesn’t want it, her ather’s always stoned, her perect sister’s too busy trying to t in,and the people in her small town would never allow her to love the person she really wants to: anothergirl, named Dee. There’s no one Astrid eels she can talk to about this deep secret or the prooundquestions that she’s trying to answer. But little does she know just how much sending her love—and asking the right questions—will aect the passengers’ lives, and her own, or the better”—Provided by publisher.ISBN 978‑0‑316‑19468‑6 (hardback)[1.
