9780316194679: Ask the Passengers

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.
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 she imagines flying over her 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.

* "Quite possibly the best teen novel featuring a girl questioning her sexuality written in years."―Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* "At once much more than a coming out novel and one of the best coming-out novels in years.... Funny, provocative, and intelligent, King's story celebrates love in all its messy, modern complexity."―Publishers Weekly, starred review

* "Another thoughtful, and often breathtaking, achievement for King, whose star is ascending as quickly as one of Astrid's planes."―Booklist, starred review

* "King's thoughtful, sad, funny, and frank book...will appeal to any mature teen resisting the pressure to conform or rebel [and] anyone who wants to define herself on her own terms."―School Library Journal, starred review

* "For kids struggling with their own truths, it can be hard to believe how much light there is once you come out of the cave. This is a book that knows and understands that, and it's one that readers will believe."―The Bulletin, starred review

* "A furiously smart and funny coming-out-and-of-age novel."―The Horn Book, starred review

"Astrid is a model of strength and compassion.... Good reading for everyone."―VOYA

"King has penned a work of realism that is magical in the telling."―Cooperative Children's Book Center

Descripción Little, Brown Company, United States, 2013. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. 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. Nº de ref. de la librería AA29780316194679
