A.S. King has been called “One of the best Y.A. writers working today” by The New York Times Book Review and is one of YA fiction's most decorated. She is the only two-time winner of the American Library Association's Michael L. Printz Award (2020 for Dig and 2024 for The Collectors). In 2022, King received the ALA's Margaret A. Edwards Award and 2023, she accepted the ALAN Award for her contributions to YA literature. In 2024, she will release highly-anticipated Pick the Lock--described as "a punk opera, a primal scream, and a portrait of a family buried in lies." She also writes middle grade fiction as Amy Sarig King, including bestselling Attack of the Black Rectangles, which Kirkus Reviews called "a searingly relevant opus to intellectual freedom," The Year We Fell from Space, and Me and Marvin Gardens. She’s taught for a decade in MFA programs, is the founder of Gracie's House, a charity that funds safe spaces for LGBTQ+ youth in rural and conservative areas, and spends many months of the year traveling the world speaking to high school and university students, educators, and humans who care about literacy and the mental health of young people.

A Quote by A.S. King
