Erin Entrada Kelly
Apple Yengko is on the Dog Log of the worst looking girls in school. Her best friend, Alyssa, saysthat she’d change schools if her name were to appear on that list! It matters to Alyssa. It matters to Apple too, but so does getting a guitar. She wants to learn to play ‘Blackbird’, her favourite Beatles’ track. Her mother says, ‘Save it for later.’ That’s what she always says. She wants Apple to behave like a good Filipino, while Apple is trying to behave American. No wonder she wishes she could ‘Blackbird Fly’ right away.
