BATTLE HYMN OF THE TIGER MOTHER (Amy Chua, 2011)

04F31682-BE9A-4949-9D28-D5B97B2D2C3C

As a child of a Filipino tiger mom who had been on the receiving end of various household items hurled at me or used to whack my behind (clothes hanger or walis tambo: choose your weapon!!) because of every possible petty reason, this novel was actually brutally hilarious and completely relatable.

Kids these days have it easy, no?

Rating: ★★★★☆
