Waiting on Wednesday (51)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine so that (this is me paraphrasing) we can all FREAK OUT TOGETHER about some rocking upcoming books. Warning: extreme fangirling may occur.

Ask the Passengers
Ask the Passengers by A.S. King

Add it: Goodreads
Publisher: Little, Brown BFYR
Format: Hardcover, 304 pages
Release Date: October 23, 2012

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 questions . . . like 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 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.
So I have this coming for review (probably after publication) and I. cannot. wait. I don't read nearly (as in barely any) enough GLBT novels. I've heard nothing but high, high praise for King's novel Everybody Sees the Ants and though I haven't read it (or her other two novels) I have high hopes for this author. The early reviews look wonderful so far!

What are you anxiously waiting on?
