it was amazing
bookshelves: 2012
Read in July, 2012

Unable to use it on land, Astrid sends her love to the sky, to airplanes and their passengers. She can't give it to her distant mother, her pot-smoking father, her popular sister, or the gossipy inhabitants of their small-town. She would like to give it to Dee, her co-worker, but she doesn't know if that desire makes her gay or straight. One thing is for certain -- the only way to treat her love the way it deserves to be treated is to give it away.

I've looked at airplanes differently these past few days.

Read from lunch break to lunch break after receiving an ARC from the publisher. Whenever I read A.S. King, I know what I'm in for, but still get blown away. I love Astrid's inability to keep that love inside of her, the way in which she challenges the notion of narrow boxes, and the way she finds perfection in the most inperfect place -- the unknown.
