    Oh my god THIS BOOK I love it so much It captures perfectly how it is to be a Filipino kid living in Metro Manila And it doesn t stop there, it establishes economic privileges and inequality too, along with colonial mentality Moreover, the way it examines substance abuse and the war on drugs is so important and moving I can t help but wish I had this book when I was Sab s age so I could ve known better about all this and learned early I m so excited for the youth who will get to do so soon All that said about the many issues MY FATE tackles, this story is absolutely fun and heartwarming These dark scary times don t take away from Sab s light summer adventures, and I know my fellow Filipinos will laugh, get hungry for local food, and will hope our country can heal and find peace like Sab s family.

    Thank you to Scholastic Press for an ARC of this book.Sab thinks she s about to die She just saw a black butterfly, which her father told her is a omen of death Her best friend, Pepper, and her sister, Ate Nadine, don t believe it s actually going to happen, but Sab can t help by worry about it It also happens to be just before her 11th birthday, and what she really wants this year is to find a way to get her dad and sister to start talking again after they mysteriously stopped about a year ago As Sab tries to bring everyone together, she learns about what tore them apart, and family secrets are revealed.I love middle grade stories set in other countries This one takes place in Manila, Philippines, and looks at the drug trade and the impact it has on families Many books about drug use are aimed at older middle grade audiences, while I felt this was an excellent book to speak to a younger crowd Sab s gentle awakening to her father s history with addiction is a great way for readers to learn about the topic with her I also love that her parents are both in new relationships, and there is a supportive network of adults and older teens to help and care for her I d love to see this book in classroom and libraries after it s released on July 30th.
