Mia isn't like anybody else: she sees colors and shapes when she reads and listens to things, a condition known as synesthesia, which she tries to hide. A Mango-Shaped Space is at once sweet and interesting and touching. Yes, yes, YES!

— Lauren


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.
