A Mango-Shaped Space

Author:Wendy Mass
Reading Level: 5th and up

Pages: 220
Publisher: Little, Brown
Edition: Paperback 2005 (2003)

Even though there is quite a bit of novelty on the subject of the rare physical condition that Mia suffers from, the story was not over-shadowed by it. Mass tells a story that is genuine on its emotional level and appeals to many young people. Mia is a likable character and her family is quirky and supportive. Of course, I had to cry over the couple of deaths of family pets!
