A Mango-Shaped Space by Wendy Mass
An excellent book for parents to read along with their children, Wendy Mass’ novel tells the story of thirteen-year-0ld Mia Winchell, for whom sounds, numbers, and words have always appeared in color. Until she turned thirteen, Mia kept her synesthesia a secret. But as she advances in school, Mia’s unique way of perceiving the world becomes increasingly hard to hide. Mass does a wonderful job of explaining what synesthesia is, how it feels to live with it, and Mia’s own developing appreciation for the opportunities and challenges synesthesia presents in Mia’s education, relationships, and art.
