Imagination and adventure run wild in the most talked about middle grade debut of the year!  
 
A small village on a Jamaican island. 
A girl who doesn't remember the previous summer. 
A best friend who is no longer acting like one; a new girl who fills that hole in her heart. 
A summer of finding fallen mangos, creating made up games and dancing in the rain. 
Secrets she keeps from others...and herself.
The courage to face the truth even in the toughest of storms. 
 
Inspired by the author's childhood experiences, When Life Give You Mangos is a celebration of island life as well as a rich, lyrical mystery.  
 
Read it...and don't spoil the unforgettable ending! 

A recommended read for classroom discussons and educators looking for diverse offerings.
