Publisher's Summary

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 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 at 30,000 feet, and they don't even realize 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.

Ask yourself why you must read this book, NOW!!!

What did you love best about Ask the Passengers?

A.S. King has an amazing ability of creating characters of depth and complexity that we can understand and empathize with while placing them in heart rendering situations that are soul deep. She has done her finest work with ASK THE PASSENGERS by showcasing a teenaged girl named Astrid Jones, a girl that is trying cope with the fact that her family is totally dysfunctional, that she might be gay and why she has to keep sending love to all the passengers on the planes that fly overhead.

What other book might you compare Ask the Passengers to and why?

EVERYBODY SEES THE ANTS because it is another well written novel by the same author

Which scene was your favorite?

When Astrid finally looses it.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, once I started I did not want to stop.

Any additional comments?

The reader for this novel did a fine job of conveying all the emotions that were conveyed in the book. She also sounded like a teen and not an older person trying too hard to sound like one. It was well done and I truly enjoyed this audiobook.

Soo good!

This book is funny, tender, and so valuable. It asks great questions of society and its need for boxes, labels, and "perfection." I highly recommend it.
