Ask the Passengers is about a senior in high school, Astrid, who is questioning her identity and place in her family. Her mom loves her sister more, her dad spends all his time stoned, and her sister doesn't support her. The town Astrid lives in is not accepting of differences and so when Astrid begins to fall in love with a girl, she keeps it a secret. Throughout the story she becomes more comfortable with who she really is and with letting the people she loves know the true her. I found myself wanting to tell the characters how they could be better people, and hoping they were accepting of Astrid. I loved the ending and it made me appreciate the love that I have in my life.
