When Life Gives You Mangoes by Kereen Getten


Children’s Bookseller Review by Alex:

Debut novel set in Jamaica, a delightful insight into the strength of love and community in this small village with a super twist I didn’t see coming. 


I really enjoyed this book – it was a well-told, sweet, and engaging story. It definitely wasn’t what I expected, in the best way possible. I think children from the age of 11 would enjoy this but older readers will love it too. By: Niara (age 14). Rating: 5/5.

Nothing much happens in Sycamore, the small village where Clara lives. She loves eating ripe mangoes fallen from trees, running outside in the rainy season and escaping to her secret hideout with her best friend Gaynah. There’s only one problem – she can’t remember anything that happened last summer.
