Dig - a haiku summary


by A.S. King
Penguin Random House, 2019

I have only read two A.S. King books to date (the phenomenal Glory O'Brien's History of the Future being the other), but I feel that I've read enough to know that A.S. King is a writer like no other.  As such, her books are difficult to parse into a review that accurately captures the spirit of the book.  You can find many reviews of this book that has garnered starred reviews from Bookpage, SLJ, Horn Book, BCCB, Booklist, and SLC.  I instead, will offer a haiku review:

Girl appears. Helps weirds.
Twisted stories buried deep.
What truths does earth keep?

Dig in and read this surreal masterpiece.

Read a bit for yourself with this peek inside Dig:
