I finished this book (with 320 pages) in less than 5 hours. It's quite a big deal for me because I'm a slow reader. I really enjoyed this one. I loved the diverse cast of characters. We have Virgil who comes from a Filipino-American family, Valencia who has a hearing disability and pretty inredible, and Kaori who is Japanese-American and a self-proclaimed psychic. Not to mention Virgil's Lola (grandmother), and Kaori's little sister slash sidekick Gen. I adore them all! I liked the magical realism, the Philippine folktales and myths that were included in the story (which I'm honestly not familiar of), and the humor in this book. I thought the ending was a bit anticlimactic and the parents could be more present or at least have a good portrayal. I wish there's an illustrated edition of this book because that would be wonderful!
