AYUYANG, Rina. Blame This on the Boogie. illus. by author. 200p. Drawn & Quarterly. Nov. 2018. ISBN 9781770463189.
Gr 8 Up –Ayuyang’s memories of growing up in a Filipino immigrant family and her life as a cartoonist and mother in California are tied together by her love of music, from channeling Olivia Newton-John in her childhood living room to her obsessive Dancing with the Stars fandom. Her style is colorful and freeform, with panels and characters literally dancing across the page. While Ayuyang takes on her postpartum depression and her struggles as a comics creator, most of the book is lighthearted and fun.
