    Winner of the Michael L. Printz Medal

    "King’s narrative concerns are racism, patriarchy, colonialism, white privilege, and the ingrained systems that perpetuate them.... [Dig] 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." (Horn Book starred review)

    "I’ve never understood white people who can’t admit they’re white. I mean, white isn’t just a color. And maybe that’s the problem for them. White is a passport. It’s a ticket."

    Five estranged cousins are lost in a maze of their family’s tangled secrets. Their grandparents, former potato farmers Gottfried and Marla Hemmings, managed to trade digging spuds for developing subdivisions, and now they sit atop a million-dollar bank account - wealth they’ve refused to pass on to their adult children or their five teenage grandchildren. "Because we want them to thrive," Marla always says.

    But for the Hemmings cousins, "thriving" feels a lot like slowly dying of a poison they started taking the moment they were born. As the rot beneath the surface of the Hemmings’ white suburban respectability destroys the family from within, the cousins find their ways back to one another, just in time to uncover the terrible cost of maintaining the family name.

    With her inimitable surrealism, award winner A.S. King exposes how a toxic culture of polite white supremacy tears a family apart and how one determined generation can dig its way out.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "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 best-selling 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)

    "This visceral examination of humanity’s flaws and complexity...cultivates hope in a younger generation that’s wiser and stronger than its predecessors.” (Booklist)
