Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer  SHC
Mia has a perfectly harmless yet rare condition where sights and sounds have a color in her head. Whenever she hears a noise, a color streaks across her vision. She has had trouble in school trying to figure out how numbers can be added together to get another number. To Mia the corresponding number they add up to does not match the color that the original numbers were. As long as she has known about it she has kept it a secret, until now. Her family and many of the people she knows have trouble getting used to this new idea. Mia, herself, experiments with her colors and it takes a heart breaking experience to find out what a special thing her colors are.

I loved the uniqueness of "A Mango-Shaped Space." The description that Wendy Mass puts into the passages that explain the colors that Mia sees were fantastic. Zack and Beth, Mia's siblings, were woven beautifully into the story. They were like a sideshow that added to the story. As a whole, the book was fascinating and it held my attention the whole way through.
