    A Complete Joy! “Love & Other Firsts” is a poignant, humorous, and memorable coming-of-age novel about Ligaya, a fourteen-year old idealistic young girl entering her sophomore year in high school. What makes this book so unique and special is that the story takes place in the Philippines and in 1975. Through Ms. Angbetic’s beautifully detailed descriptions of the location, customs, clothing, food, music, and movies, I was immediately transported to life in Cebu City and to the cultural influences of disco music, movies like “Jaws,” mini-skirts and bell bottoms, and long hairstyles. Although Ligaya’s story transpires in a foreign country and decades ago, the universality of her story, with its joys and challenges, ring true for all teenagers, wherever they may be. Ms. Angbetic’s writing is so real, that she truly captures the fourteen-year old voice that we can all remember: a voice filled with hope, confusion, fear, excitement, disappointment, and joy. As such, “Love & Other... More > Firsts” is a heartfelt and delightful story for teenagers and adults alike. I loved it!< Less
