Growing Up Filipino Stories for Young Adults - hardcover


The popular young adult anthology, GROWING UP FILIPINO: STORIES FOR YOUNG ADULTS, is now available in hardcover and with a new cover. For a little while it is available for $28 in Amazon. The price will go up on 2/26/21.

"Emerging and established award-winning writers are the authors of this fine collection of 29 stories about what it means to be young and Filipino in the Philippines and in the United States. … This impressive array captures the complexities of both the Filipino culture and history and the realities of the lives of young adults no matter what their ethnic affiliation. ~ Bookbird Journal International. Children’s Literature, IBBY

“These 29 short stories offer a highly textured portrait of Filipino youth and an excellent sampling of creative writing … Authors include those born and continuing to live in the Philippines, emigres, and American-born Filipinos … There are more Filipinos living in the U.S. than most people realize, but finding literature reflective of their experiences is difficult. The high caliber and broad but wholly accessible range of this collection, however, makes this title a solid purchase for multiple reasons.” ~ School Library Journal
