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 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.
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. (GoodReads).
Ask The Passengers by A.S. King made me feel sad and happy at once. I liked Astrid a whoooole lot, but am not sure if the happy outweighs the sad.
Level of Originality: 8. This is a book that explores LGBT teenage experiences alongside a little magic in the way Astrid can seemingly send love to the passengers in the sky. LOVE.
Level of Absurdity: 3.. This score doesn't represent Astrid or her high school experience; A.S. King does such a good job describing her and her life.
Level of Harry Potterness: 5. The sending of love that Astrid does is my favorite part of this book. To her dad and mom, but also the the planes overhead.
