Callanta Book 2: Rebel Heart

To Ching and Kat, who read everything I put under their noses,
you made Baguio infinitely more precious.
This one’s for you.

Rebel Heart by Elise Estrella

Written: 2007
Released: June 2008

The first time they met sa bus na patungong Baguio, agad nagkahulihan ng loob sina Rebecca at Nicko. Naroon sila pareho para magbakasyon at mag-isip-isip kung paano aayusin ang buhay-buhay nila. And they found more than just a companion in each other.

She was not looking for a boyfriend… pero habang lumilipas ang mga araw na kasama niya ang binata, parang gustong humiling ni Rebecca na higit pa sa pagkakaibigan ang mamagitan sa kanila.

Pero malabo yatang matupad ang wish niya nang akyatin nila ang two hundred fifty steps sa Grotto. May nobyang naghihintay kay Nicko sa Maynila…

Trivia:

  • It took me a year to finish the book. I was stuck halfway for six months and finished Inosenteng Puso before I added anything to the manuscript.
  • The title came from my favorite instrumental song by The Corrs, also called “Rebel Heart“.
  • The scene at SM Baguio really happened to me and one of my friends minus the romantic atmosphere because we were both girls. I just lent it to Nicko and Bethany.

    Hi! Naku, matagal na kasi siya na-release so malamang wala na siya sa bookstores. Malamang nasa mga secondhand bookstores/booksellers na lang meron. May nagbebenta sa FB ko ng copies, kung nag-online shopping ka. You can send her a PM to ask kung available pa. Ito ‘yong account. šŸ™‚ Hope that helps!
