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.
She was a finalist for the Washington Square fiction contest and Glimmer Train Very Short Fiction Award in 2007, and her writing has been nominated for the 2008 storySouth Million Writers Award and the Best New American Voices 2010 anthology. A citizen of both Ireland and the U.S., King's short fiction, poetry and nonfiction have been featured in the Sunday Times Magazine (Dublin edition), the Sunday Tribune Magazine, and iVillage, as well as in several literary journals including Quality Women's Fiction, Underground Voices, and Contrary.
She now lives in Pennsylvania with her husband and children. The Dust of 100 Dogs is her debut novel.
