Pressestimmen"Growing Up Brown is intense, honest, and meaningful. Its major contributions will be etched in the ways it presents a 'local' story of a significant Filipino American bridge generation member cast within a larger tale of 'brown' Americans and their struggles to define themselves in relation to others, to find meaning in the communities and worlds they inhabited, and to tell their stories using their own voices and perspectives."--Rick Bonus, author of Locating Filipino Americans: Ethnicity and the Cultural Politics of Space
