Waiting on Wednesday: Ask the Passengers

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
 

Ask the Passengers
A.S. King
Little Brown BFYR

Young Adult

Synopsis via Goodreads
Astrid Jones copes with her small town's gossip and narrow-mindedness by staring at the sky and imagining that she's sending love to the passengers in the airplanes flying high over her backyard. 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.

Wow! This sounds like it is going to be one powerful punch of a book. Just stumbled across this one a few hours ago whilst searching for a book to do for Waiting on Wednesday. I found quite a few new and exciting reads but decided this one had to be today's. This one just has award wirtten all over it. I can not wait for it to release. :D

I have heard such great things about A.S. King. I really need to get on that bandwagon, like, NOW. Nice pick!
