Ask the Passengers

(1)

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.

Bred and born in open-minded New York City she moved to small town Unity Valley at the age of nine. It is in this ignorant and conservative town that she has to come to terms with her sexuality... "Ask the Passengers" is an honest portrayal of the perception of homosexuality not only in small town America, but sadly wide parts all around the globe. Can't you just love an amazing person without having to put a label on it which, more often than not, causes hate, disgust and fear? If you read this you might want to think twice before discriminating someone because of their sexuality, ethnicity, religion, BMI or anything else, really.
