When Life Gives You Mangos

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.

12-year-old Clara doesn't know why her best friend Gaynah is increasingly temperamental, or why she now has a deep fear of going near the water, or why she's angry all the time. And how can she ever understand what happened — and what to do about it — if she doesn't remember any of it? Inspired by the author Kereen Getten's childhood experiences, When Life Give You Mangos is a celebration of island life as well as a rich, lyrical mystery with a twist ending, full of universal issues about friendship, loss, and learning to move on.
