Ask the Passengers by AS King
Publisher: Little, Brown (US)
Release Date: October 23rd, 2012 (US)

Astrid Jones copes with her small town's gossip and narrow-mindedness by staring at the sky and imagining that she's sending love to the passengers in the airplanes flying high over her backyard. 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 father's always stoned, her perfect sister's too busy trying to fit in, and the people in her small town would never allow her to love the person she really wants to: another girl named Dee. There's no one Astrid feels she can talk to about this deep secret or the profound questions that she's trying to answer. But little does she know just how much sending her love--and asking the right questions--will affect the passengers' lives, and her own, for the better.

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

--Goodreads summary

I just finished Please Ignore Vera Dietz and I think it's safe to say that I will be reading everything AS King writes.



  1. i love the cover. It sounds great. And I need to read PIVD. Sounds just like my kind of read. :)

  2. This sounds amazing. I really loved AS King's first novel so I should really get my hands on the rest of her books.

  3. I must find a copy of Please Ignore Vera Dietz and Everybody Sees The Ants! I didn't even know she had a new book coming out :// Great pick!
