Advanced praise for The House that Lou Built:

"Mae Respicio is a fresh new voice and her debut, The House That Lou Built, is warm, funny and affirming. As we get to know Lou, her extended Filipino family, and friends, the door opens into her life and, ultimately, her home."
--Lisa Yee, XYZ

If this book were a house, the rooms would be filled with warmth, family, and friendship, with the rich scent of lumpia drifting from the kitchen. And Lou—an extraordinary girl with big dreams and the moxie to accomplish them—would stand in the center of it all, tools at the ready.
--Erin Entrada Kelly, XYZ

"There couldn't be a hero more determined, resourceful or lovable than Lucinda Bulosan-Nelson. Her big dream of a tiny house is irresistible. This story about family and the true meaning of home dances Tinikling straight off the page and into your heart. 
--Tricia Springstubb, XYZ
