批評家のレビュー

"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)

"A heartfelt and accessible debut about friendship, memory, and forgiveness." (Tae Keller, author of When You Trap a Tiger)

あらすじ・解説

Named to Oprah Magazine's Best Caribbean Books for Your 2021 reading list, 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.

Listen to it...and don't spoil the unforgettable ending!

A recommended choice for classroom discussions and educators looking for diverse offerings.

"A heartfelt and accessible debut about friendship, memory, and forgiveness." (Tae Keller, author of Newbery Medal winner When You Trap a Tiger)

"A wonderful story with great heart, mystery, and insight. Kereen Getten is a bright new voice." (Clare Vanderpool, author of Newbery Medal winner Moon over Manifest and Printz Honor book Navigating Early)

"A heartwarming yet suspenseful debut about the strength of family, the turmoil of friendships lost and found, and most importantly, remembering who you are." (Lynne Kelly, author of the Schneider Award winner Song for a Whale)

I love it

being from jamaica I haven't experienced what it's like living in rural jamaica and this kinda of gave me a journey I was able to listen in one day and I love how it was written and brought across by the narrator.
