Four talented teenagers are traumatized--coping with grief, surviving date rape, facing the anxiety of standardized tests and the neglect of self-absorbed adults--and they'll do anything to escape the pressure. They'll even build an invisible helicopter, to fly far away to a place where everyone will understand them...until they learn the only way to escape reality is to face it head-on.

Reviews

Praise for "I Crawl Through It" ""I Crawl Through It" proves that A.S. King is one of the most innovative and talented novelists of our time. This is King's masterpiece--a brilliant, paranoid, poetic, funny, and at times overwhelmingly sad literary cocktail of absinthe and Adderall. What a trip!" "Andrew Smith, acclaimed author of" Winger "and "Grasshopper Jungle""" "A meditation on grief, guilt, and survival.... Readers [will be] rewarded with the self-actualization of finely wrought characters.... Absolutely worthwhile."--Kirkus Reviews *"It's bizarre, compelling, and not like anything else."--Publishers Weekly, starred review *"King's novel blends the magical and the mundane in a deadpan delivery that makes it difficult to tell one from the other. This, of course, is the point of her ambitious and affecting work."--The Horn Book, starred review *"Beautiful prose, poetry, and surreal imagery combine for an utterly original story that urges readers to question, love, and believe--or risk explosion."--Booklist, starred review *"Masterfully written and brilliantly bizarre, this is King at her most innovative yet."--VOYA, starred review * "At once a statement on the culture of modern schools as well as mental health issues, this novel is an ambitious, haunting work of art."--School Library Journal, starred review Praise for I Crawl Through It A Booklist Editor's Choice Book of 2015A Booklist Top 50 YA Audiobook Novels of All Time"I Crawl Through It proves that A.S.
