When Life Gives You Mangoes

When Life Gives You Mangoes


By Kereen Getten

When Life Gives You Mangos is a wonderful story with great heart, mystery, and insight. What a treat to walk alongside Clara in her vibrant Jamaican home, through the peaks and valleys of the human experience--heartache and joy, alienation and deep friendship, regret and redemption. Clara is the girl we all wish was our best friend--honest, spirited, and real. Kereen Getten is a bright new voice. Her writing strikes the perfect balance of beauty, depth, and a touch of mango! --Clare Vanderpool, author of Newbery Medal winner Moon Over Manifest and Printz Honor book Navigating Early
