Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Thirteen-year-old Mia Winchell appears to be a typical eighth grader. But Mia is keeping a secret from everyone who knows her: sounds, numbers and words appear in color for her. Mia has synesthesia, the mingling of perceptions whereby a person can see sounds, smell colors, or taste shapes. A Mango-Shaped Space is a poignant, coming-of-age novel spiced with wit and humor that chronicles Mia's developing appreciation of her gift and the part it plays in her life. Wendy Mass can be reached by email at mangobook@aol.com, but don't ask if she sees letters or numbers in colors because she doesn't (although she wishes she did).

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It’s funny, witty, and yanks at your heart-strings. An afternoon will not be wasted as you venture into a world with cats, colors, and geometric shapes, a world that seems all too familiar to the main character Mia. Wendy Mass’s characters comes to life as their quirky traits become nice additions to the already touching journey of Mia’s quest to find herself. The concept and the ideas are genuine and original, and the tone is honest and sincere. The use of synesthesia through the main character, Mia’s eyes is delightful and brings much color to the book. The all too classic theme of finding yourself is modernly redeveloped with a new twist that gives ‘personal identity’ a whole new meaning.
