OH MY GOSH. Could it be?? A Filipino book!? If anyone knows of any Filipino books for YA, let me know -- this is good start, though, since I've never seen any MG or early reader books with Filipino protagonists or authors, either. This is great.

That book looks great. Thanks so much Susan for pointing out Shen Books.

Hey Tanita and Doret, oh, I was equally excited when I saw this. The joy of joining Twitter.

Tanita, did you see my note about sending your books? I swear, when I scrape a few pennies, I will buy a book of yours. In the meantime, I'm going to ask my library. They haven't said no yet. I'm going to ask for your latest.

If I either of you get this, please review it and let us publish it here. Thanks.
