children's fiction. middle-grade novel (Apple is in 6th grade): school outcast because of perceived ethnicity, friends turning against each other because of middle school pressures/struggle for popularity, bullying, self-acceptance and perseverence. Incidentally, Apple is also part of a single parent family (dead dad; mom won't talk about it). She also loves the Beatles and teaches herself to play the guitar (despite not owning one). The first part of the book was middle school kids being horrible to each other; the second half (in which Apple starts actually sticking up for folks) is better--easily read in one sitting. ( )

Analyn "Apple" Yengko moved from the Philippines to Louisiana when she was four, but she still doesn't feel like she fits in - and now she's #3 in the "Dog Log," a list of girls that boys declare ugly. Landing on the list causes her "friends" Alyssa and Gretchen to pull away from her; luckily, after a fumbling start, Apple makes friends with a new boy from California, Evan, and the two of them eventually befriend #1 on the Dog Log, Heleena. The new trio bond over their shared interest in music (and their un-shared interest in building model airplanes); Apple finally gets the guitar her mother has denied her when the music teacher lends her one to practice on, and Heleena sings along to "Here Comes the Sun" in an impromptu lunchtime concert. With the acceptance of true friends, and a revelation about her mother, Apple decides not to use the class field trip to New Orleans as an opportunity to run away after all.


...my mother and I are like a merry-go-round when it comes to conversations. We've run out of new things to talk about, so instead we talk about the same things over and over... (5)

Sometimes it feels like music is the only thing that saves me... (60)

Lots of people in history have left their lives behind to follow their dreams. (66)

My house felt completely different with Evan here, like I was sharing a secret I wasn't ready to tell. (119)

"It is never too late to offer something good." (Apple's mom, a saying from the Philippines, 145)

My mom likes to end conversations with a chore and a criticism. (179)

I knew that smile. It was the kind of smile that wants to run away from your face. (252)

[Alyssa] tried to say more, but the crowd swallowed her up, and she disappeared into it. I realized that's how she would always be: going where the crowd goes and then getting lost. (285) ( )

Written by Erin Entrada Kelly. This a story about Apple Yengko, a 12-year-old girl who relocates from the Philippines to Louisiana when she is four. She is eventually voted the ugliest girl in the school and has to deal with frequent racial slurs. Apple feels alienated and alone. Music becomes a form of escape (Apple is in love with The Beatles). Against her mother’s wishes, Apple is determined to become a rock star. Thanks to The Beatles and new friend Evan, she feels accepted and starts to thrive. This book is about belonging and standing out.

quick read, but a very good one! Fun elements of middle school - and a walk down traumatizing memory lane. Realistic fictional account of a girl from the Philippines trying to fit in with the rest of her middle school compatriots. I could feel for the characters emotions as I was reading, which made it all that more fun to fly through. ( )
