Ask the Passengers, by A.S. King
Genre: Young Adult Fiction, Gay/Lesbian
Rating: 2/5 stars
Goodreads Summary: "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."
- I expected this book to be much better and it was on my TBR list for a short time because I got it not too long ago.
- The concept of a girl speaking to the people that fly in planes over her is stunning. I wanted the author to emphasize more on that.
- To me, the whole book was about gay people partying. I didn't find that interesting in any way. I wanted it to be my favourite, to be so good. :/
