A Librarian Reads…

Ask the Passengers by A.S. King

Whenever Astrid sees a plane flying overhead, she sends the passengers on board her love. After all, her love isn’t doing her any good these days. Her cold and distant mother has stolen her sister’s attention away, her father spends all his time smoking pot lately, and she’s more than a little confused about her feelings for Dee, who may or may not be her girlfriend. That would depend on whether Astrid is actually gay. She can’t even ask her best friend, even though Kristina is more than sure about her relationship with Donna. Everyone is putting pressure on Astrid to be someone she isn’t sure she is or even wants to be. And how is she supposed to figure it all out with rumors, lies, and hatred flying around school and home?

A realistic and unflinching look at a teen who is questioning who she is—not only her sexuality but everything in her life. Recommended for high school and up.
