Hear what they’re saying about the book!
BLAME THIS ON THE BOOGIE is a freeform immersion via the Great American Songbook into memory, motherhood, Filipino culture, Pittsburgh, and Dancing With the Stars fan-fiction, told with delirious hand-made energy and big-hearted charm.

Blame This on the Boogie draws us in with effortless grace and weaves a sweetly compelling story of assimilation, ambition, and a 1980s childhood shaped by ‘Solid Gold,’ Duran Duran videos, and Fred Astaire. Rina’s gift for expressing her love of dance and her love for her family brings something new and refreshing to graphic memoirs that I want more of.
