It will be a week of cover sharing here on the blog because I will soon share the EVERYBODY SEES THE ANTS paperback cover as well as the cool Turkish VERA DIETZ cover.

But first...the ASK THE PASSENGERS cover and book description for you.

Oct 23, 2012

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.

You know, you could have seen this cover yesterday if you were a member of A.S. King's Secret Hideout on Facebook.  If you're on Facebook and you want access to cover reveals, news and exclusive content, you should join the crew at the Secret Hideout. Today's Hideout booty is: The EVERYBODY SEES THE ANTS paperback cover, which is a doozy. (Or, you could always wait a day or two and see it here. No pressure.)

Love the concept of Ask the Passengers. Not an exact parallel, but the B.o.B song, "Airplanes" immediately came to mind. Looking forward to the release.

Thanks Eric. I will have to look up that song now...
