When Life Gives You Mangoes

When Life Gives You Mangoes

By Kereen Getten

I really enjoyed this book because of the way it is written, I really enjoyed the way it was in first person, personally I like it that way. I would recommend this book to 10 to 11 year olds because it’s quite emotional and sad.

I really did love the way the author described the characters I picked up on their personality so quickly, which made it so easy for me to understand what was happening and what type of atmosphere was hanging in the air.

The ending is one to prepare for if you’re quite emotional. I wasn’t prepared for the ending as I thought it was something totally different so I was quite surprised. The ending really did fit so well with the story line, when you read it all of the pieces of the story just slip into place and it’s so easy to understand then.
