SINGAPORE, Dec. 2, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- "Love, Pinkie (>.<)" is a girlie read over the holidays. Pinkie, the character in the book, penned her inner thoughts and feelings in a diary, loosely speaking letters.
The author of this book, Christina Siew, is a 26-year-old Generation Y writer. She captures the short attention span of this instant gratification society with short topical chapters. This young author's raw and introspective writings employ a conversational tone and portrays Pinkie as a friend or elder sister. Girls of all ages around the world will identify with Pinkie and in turn feel empathy for their journey.
Instead of utilizing the traditional print, her e-book challenges conventional reading and publishing practices. With readers of today gravitating towards reading e-books, "Love, Pinkie (>.<)" is an ideal way to reach out to her fellow Gen Y'ers and their younger sisters.
The writer uses Pinkie to echo her day-to-day observations and life lessons learned. The mundane things in life, through her unique lens, captivate the audience. Christina peels away the outer layer of life and looks within, helping readers to contemplate and reflect more on life. It's the kind of book young women will love to read at this time of the year - a time to reflect and plan.
"It's going to stir controversies in some societies," said Christina Siew. Delving into relationships, friends and family, technology, religions and dreams, all sensitive issues are explored. Norms are questioned. She winces at pre-marital sex and thinks that attraction between girls is not lesbianism. Like many of her peers, she is not afraid to voice her opinions and to challenge what is being pandered to her while flourishing from a girl into a lady.
She is the budding spark and embodiment of a young Generation Y. Taking new risks, they seek to be their own boss. They do not only set sights on the local market but on the world at large.
The globe is Gen Y's oyster.
