I loved reading your book. It was like reading a few of my own experiences but narrated better than I could ever tell it. It was like reading pieces of proper cultural perspective, especially on your take about always being mistaken as the wrong type of Asian (never Filipino, too much feels lol) Thanks again for writing your book!
My bestfriend (now boyfriend) gave me a copy of your book, and it was honestly the best xmas gift ever!
I was at Purveyor earlier and saw her book. Firstly, I gotta say, her way with words has charmed me in many ways. Then her storytelling made me curious to find out how old she was. I sensed that Rachel is just around my age, but it seems like she has done so much, achieved so much–it’s hard for me not to compare where I am at this point in my life. I feel so experienced.
At the same time, so inspired! I am more driven to go out there and experience more things in life. As I was reading the first few chapters of Rachel’s book, I realized that writers must be really mindful of every moment so they could capture as many details as possible for future output. Maybe there’s the reason why her stories seem to be so rich and interesting.
