Praise

“A.S. King challenges readers from the first page to the last. Dig will make you question the confines of your comfort zone—if you have one. An incredible addition to an already impressive body of work.“—Erin Entrada Kelly, New York Times bestselling author and Newbery medalist

★”[King’s] trademark surrealism and trenchant prose will speak profoundly to a generation of young people who are waking up to the societal sins of the past and working toward a more equitable future.”—The Horn Book, starred

★”This visceral examination of humanity’s flaws and complexity […] cultivates hope in a younger generation that’s wiser and stronger than its predecessors.”—Booklist, starred

★ “[P]urely mesmerizing … the most haunting exploration in youth literature to date of the advantage and poison that is white privilege, and the resentment of young people at the toxicity of what they inherit. King fans know to expect the unexpected, and they’ll be richly rewarded with this intricate, heartfelt, readable concoction.“ —BCCB, starred

★ “Sometimes, once you start digging, you find the poisonous parts, but you also find the fruit that will keep you alive.“—SLC, starred review 

“A.S. King’s novels…are in another solar system entirely.”—Bookpage, starred review

“[This] strange and heart-wrenching tale is stunningly original.”—Kirkus

[P]rofound … offers hope that at least some of these characters will dig themselves out from under the legacy of hate they have unwillingly inherited.”—Publishers Weekly 

“This is one of the best written, most memorable young adult novels I’ve ever read. It’s that good.”—Richie’s Picks

“No apologies necessary. Dig is writing at its finest.”—Book and Film Globe

“I’ve had a long love affair with the work of Amy Sarig King. Dust of 100 Dogs was the first of her work I read, a decade ago. I was riveted, and I wanted to know more about the mind that could conceive of such a story. Naturally, I googled her. I read about chickens and Ireland and photographs and a long road to selling her first novel. I have read every book of hers since. I’ve wept. Laughed. Marveled. Raged. There is no other writer like her. She has the power to astonish like a natural wonder. And her books—the raw honesty, beauty, and singular strangeness of them—make me feel less alone in the world.”—Martha Brockenbrough, author of The Game of Love and Death
