    This is a well crafted piece of work Karen Francisco wrote this book probably based on what she thought would be saleable, as in uso but I think she was also trying to positively influence the taste of the reading public Not to the extent of going doing it ala Syjuco, i.e., making the story hard to read so tha

    Original post at One More PageI spotted Naermyth by Karen Francisco in Fully Booked by sheer accident I was supposed to get The Giver by Lois Lowry when I felt like ambling over to the Filipiniana section of the store and then I saw the black and orange spine of the book I thought it was just a new local comics or something but when I
