This isn’t just another conventional book about a teenager. There are no fantasies (like Disney) here, no perfect relationships, life isn’t peachy at all. A. S. King brings us into the life of Astrid Jones just as it is.
Astrid is a seventeen year old girl trying to find her way through life and has some difficulties defining her sexuality.
She spends her time on a picnic table, sending love to passengers in airplanes all the time.
For two years she has kept the secrets of her friends, Kristina and Justin, whose relationship is too good to be true.
Astrid’s own secret comes out after the cops bust her and her friends at Atlantis, a gay bar, and her dad has to pick her up.
This book only takes a few hours to read.
Well-done to A. S. King for this book.
