Astrid Jones copes with her small town's gossip and narrow-mindedness by sending love to the passengers in the airplanes flying overhead. 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.

Realistic and well-portrayed angst is the feature of this feel-good story

Sat, 1 Aug 2015 | Review by: Sue @ Crushingcinders

Realistic and well-portrayed angst is the feature of this feel-good story where acceptance is key. In love with another girl, Astrid struggles with honesty in a small conservative town, where eyes are everywhere and gossip rules. I struggled with the ‘keyhole peek’ into the passengers flying above, which gave the story a disjointed feel. It seemed out of place, as though the author had the idea before and tried to mold the story around it. Full review: http://crushingcinders.com/ask-the-passengers-by-a-s-king-ya-book-review/
