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."

BookSigningSomeoneLikeYou

Come say hi Sunday October 23rd, 1 PM @ Chapters Square One. I will be doing an author meet and greet & book signing event for my novel, Someone Like You. I want to say thank you in advance to the manager at Chapters because of all the Chapters in all the land, this is the one I visited the most, growing up in Mississauga. Also, when I was writing my novel a few years ago, I visited this location and while paying for a book, struck up a conversation with one of the lovely cashiers. Jennifer ended up being a beta-reader for me in the very early stages of this novel. So this location is a special one and I'm really excited, in a sense, to come back home and sell my book here. I can't wait for Sunday! Yay!
