I received an ARC of this book for free from the publisher as part of a blog tour Since I received an ARC my uotes from the book are tentative I just want to preface this review by saying this was one of my most anticipated reads of the year Like the main character of this book I am half Filipino and half white Seeing myself represented in literature means the world to me I also want to say that I ve never been to the Philippines so I can t speak to anything in that regardWow This book was everything I don t even know where to begin First off all the Filipino culture was amazing to see I ve never read a book with this much Filipino culture Every time I saw something I was like Yeah that s my culture right there By the way that happened a lot throughout this book The blurb on the back of the cover compares this book to Angie Thomas s The Hate U Give That was likely a marketing ploy but in a way I do see merit to that comparison There s something about Randy Ribay s writing that reminds me of Angie Thomas s They both like to bring up big points in subtle ways If you ve read my review of THUG you ll see some examples In this book one example is when the author casually brings up the American human zoos Tito Maning says to Jay Do you know the Americans stole entire villages and then displayed them in your country as I they were animals in a zoo pg 153 Yes that really did happen Just google 1904 World s Fair filipino I only just learned about that when I was in college I thought that the author did a great job describing the President Duterte s war on drugs in a multifaceted way He showcased different viewpoints on it and shared actual accounts like the story of Kian delos Santos who was unjustly shot and killed by the police I also loved how the author tackled the issue of identity and being biracial As a fellow biracial Filipino I could relate to Jay a lot Being biracial is such a tricky thing and the author captured it perfectly There s a little bit of LGBT representation which I appreciated It s always nice to see the LGBT community acknowledged and normalized even when it s not a part of the main storylineAs for the plot and what happened with Jun there was a lot of gray areas which made it feel realistic Things aren t so clear cut which is what happens in real life I appreciated that approach Basically I just want to thank the author for writing this book Not only does this book successfully highlight the biracial Filipino American experience but it also shines a light on a lesser known social injustice To end I want to share a uote that really hit me It strikes me that I cannot claim this country s serene coves and sun soaked beaches without also claiming its poverty its problems its history To say that any aspect of it is part of me is to say that all of it is part of me pg 227 Keys to inner space in literature means the world to me I also want to say that I ve never been to the Philippines so I can t speak to anything Nann Dunnes Books Sampler in that regardWow This book was everything I don t even know where to begin First off all the Filipino culture was amazing to see I ve never read a book with this much
