Nothing PDF eBook

Description

Gr 10 Up—Integrating snippets of Tagalog and Bikol, author Ribay displays a deep friendship

between two 17-year-old cousins: Jay, born in the Philippines but raised in the United States since

infancy, and Jun, born and raised in a gated community in Manila. Jay, considered white in an allwhite

school, is starting to get acceptances (and rejections) from colleges and finds out while

playing video games that Jun, with whom he corresponded for years via 'actual letters—not email

or texts or DMs,' is dead. His Filipino father doesn't want to talk about it, but his North American

mother reveals that Jun was using drugs. Jay blames his uncle, a police chief, for his murder after

researching the dictatorship of Rodrigo Duterte (the book includes a handy author's note and a list

of articles and websites), who has sanctioned and perpetrated the killing of between 12,000 and

20,000 drug addicts by police and vigilantes since 2016. Jay, armed with his stack of letters,

returns to Manila to search for the truth. Ribay weaves in Jun's letters so readers witness Jun's

questions and his attempts to reconcile the inequity around him with his faith. Jay follows Jun's

footsteps into the slums of Manila, the small house of his activist aunts, and the Catholic parish of

his uncle, a village priest, and learns painful truths about his family, his home country, and himself.

VERDICT Part mystery, part elegy, part coming of age, this novel is a perfect convergence of

authentic voice and an emphasis on inner dialogue around equity, purpose, and reclaiming one's

lost cultural identity.—Sara Lissa Paulson, City-As-School High School, New York City Read
