Growing Up Filipino II: More Stories for Young Adults
by Cecilia Manguerra Brainard, Editor
'Growing Up Filipino II: More Stories for Young Adults' is the second volume of the Growing Up Filipino series by PALH. In this collection of 27 short stories, Filipino and Filipino American writers explore the universal challenges and experiences of Filipino teens after the historic events of 9/11. The modern demands do not hinder Filipino youth from dealing with the universal concerns of growing up: family, friends, love, home, budding sexuality, leaving home. The delightful stories are written by well known as well as emerging writers. While the target audience of this fine anthology is young adults, the stories can be enjoyed by adult readers as well. There is a scarcity of Filipino American literature and this book is a welcome addition.
The book featured here is volume II the first volume is no longer available. Very soon, the second volume will also be out of print.
