A Mango Shaped Space by Wendy Mass

Mia is a 14 year old girl just starting 8th and she’s a little different, when she hears thing, different colors flash across her vision and her letters and numbers have different colors too. In this book Mia is having trouble in school and with her friend Jenna and this is all because of her Synesthesia (that’s the name of her condition). In the book something bad happens that Mia doesn’t understand why it happened but then she realizes it only made her stronger and more appreciative of her Synesthesia. I would recommend this book to most girls but guys can read it too. I think girls will be able to relate to it more than boys because the main character is a girl.
