not yet rated|write a review
Four teenagers are on the verge of exploding. The anxieties they face at every turn have nearly pushed them to the point of surrender: senseless high-stakes testing, the lingering damage of past trauma, the buried grief and guilt of tragic loss. They are desperate to cope, but no one is listening.

So they will lie. They will split in two. They will turn inside out. They will even build an invisible helicopter to fly themselves far away...but nothing releases the pressure. Because, as they discover, the only way to truly escape their world is to fly right into it.

The genius of acclaimed author A.S. King reaches new heights in this groundbreaking work of surrealist fiction; it will mesmerize readers with its deeply affecting exploration of how we crawl through traumatic experience--and find the way out.

Customer Reviews of I Crawl Through It

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favourite novels of 2015! You don’t even understand how much I love A.S. King. I’ve read almost all of her books (which I will surely fix soon) and I loved every single one of them. And of course, I Crawl Through It is no exception. I Crawl Through It revolves around a group of four friends/misfits. Stanzi is obsessed with biology and dealing with a loss. China is inside out and writes poems. Gustav is building an invisible helicopter and Lansdale lies so much her hair grows. Basically, it’s a recipe for awesome. I Crawl Through It is definitely a very trippy and intense book. If you’ve never read A.S. King, then you wouldn’t know her way with magic realism. My motto for reading her novels is that everything is real. If you spend the novel trying to figure out what is happening and what isn’t, you’ll miss the best parts. The only way to read it is to suspend your disbelief, which is an awesome way to read a book and/or live life. I Crawl Through It is definitely a bit on the darker side, and the main character deal with a lot of crap. The novel is captivating and interesting, and I don’t want to reveal too much about anything else because this novel is so truly amazing that you have to read it for yourself. Overall, I Crawl Through It is another awesome magic realism novel that I highly recommend to everyone. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ll be sitting over here clutching my ARC and softly weeping.
