mango shaped space

It was an amazing book!

loved it

this was wonderful


this book is really good, and kind of sad. Wendy Mass is an AMAZING author!


Oh my goodness my teachers started reading this to my class when we were in the sixth grade and they never finished! But I loved it..Mia's quirky behavior and attitude is fresh and inspiring. From what I remember this is a really nice book.


This book, while also being a great read, is very informative about Mia's condition. I had never heard of her condition before reading this.

Mango Shaped Space

Wow this is an awesome book. I love Wendy Mass and this is her first book. It is about a girl with a certain condition that causes her hearing to have colors and some other things. If you like this, you should read The Name Of This Book Is Secret by Pseudonymous Bosch. It also includes synesthesia and is where I learned about the condition. ENJOY!


This book shows how humans and animals interact.


It's about a interesting girl that has interesting powers. -Katie 6th grade
