Read full description of the books:
An experimental book about a bunch of Filipino, genderqueer kids living in 1970s Hawaii. While the fragmented structure of the story did not do too much for me, I appreciated Zamora Linmark's honest and sometimes brutal portrayal of postcolonial trauma and race relations. Linmark incorporated a ton of pop references that offset the serious stuff the fifth-graders in Rolling the R's face, and his consistent use of Pidgin English made the novel a unique read. Recommended to those interested in its synopsis as well as to those searching for something different, diverse, and meaningful in a zany way.
