Weekly Reads: Ask the Passengers

Ask the Passengers is another incredible book by A.S. King. I'm fairly certain I will love anything she writes, ever. It is a coming-of-age story where Astrid struggles to figure out her sexuality, and to share that information with her friends and family. Astrid's safe place is laying down, staring at the sky and sending her love up to the passengers inside, since she doesn't need her love down here on Earth. The snippets of information from the passenger's POV really make the book that much better.

My rating: 4 stars

Summary from goodreads:

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.
