Dig (EPUB ebook)

By King, A. S.

Only a generation removed from being Pennsylvania potato farmers, property developers Gottfried and Marla Hemmings now sit atop a seven-figure bank account-wealth they've declined to pass on to their adult children or teenage grandchildren. 'Because we want them to thrive,' Marl...a always says. What does thriving look like? Like carrying a snow shovel everywhere. Like selling pot from a fast-food drive-thru window. Like a first-class ticket to Jamaica between cancer treatments. Like a flea circus in a trailer. Like the GPS coordinates to a mound of dirt in a New Jersey forest. As the rot beneath the surface of the Hemmings' suburban respectability begins to spread, the far-flung grandchildren gradually find their ways back to one another, just in time to uncover the terrible cost of maintaining the family name. With her inimitable surrealism and insight into the teenage experience, YA master A.S. King explores how a corrosive culture of polite, affluent white supremacy tears a family apart and how one determined generation can save themselves. 'One of the best YA writers working today.' John Green, author of The Fault in Our Stars 'Maybe there are writers more adept than King at capturing the outrageous and outraged voice of teenagers, but it's difficult to think of one.' New York Times '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 medallist
