From the publisher's website:
"A yellow dress with ruffles, a kind Grade 1 teacher with a surname that's difficult to spell, cockroaches in the bathroom, the contempt of strangers, and Whitney Houston on the radio-a Filipino woman recalls her experience as a six-year-old immigrant in a ghetto in Mississauga in the 80's."

Thank you Insauga.com!!

Thank you to Insauga for having me on their show tonight. Such wonderful, warm hosts. Though I no longer live in Mississauga, there will always be a special place in my heart for the city I grew up in, the city where my novel takes place.  Read the book review at Insauga.com.
