I generally don’t like YA romance. I think it’s because the baby sitter in me thinks that anyone between 10-15 years old is too young to focus too much on romance. But once in a while I do stumble upon one that’s really a good read. This week, it’s an excerpt from Raissa Rivera Falgui’s Woman in a Frame. Set in modern times, with flashbacks of The Philippines at the doors of the Filipinio Revolution against the Spaniards, it about Sining who finds a painting of a woman in a frame, which leads her to look for that painting’s past, and learning about her connection to it and Marcela. In the excerpt, Marcela realizes that what she feels for Julio is love. But she knows it is impossible, she is an Indio and he is a Spaniard. My review to come.
