I read the novel “Diary ng Panget” by Have You Seen This Girl, before we started shooting the movie. I think it became a hit because of the story. It speaks with the voice of the youth. Anyone can relate to the story—whether you’re a popular kid or a nerd, beautiful or awkward. You see the points of view of both the girl and the boy. It helps a young person broaden his or her perspective. I met the author during our second press con for the movie. For one so young, she has achieved so much. Bayani San Diego Jr.
