A Mango Shaped Space by Wendy Mass

The main character, Mia, has synesthesia. Whenever she hears a sound, she sees a shape and color. Also, letters and words have colors for her, too. When she finally reveals her secret, Mia feels as if there was something wrong with her. This is a story about a girl who has to discover how it is like to be different.
I really enjoyed this book because it was fun to find out more about synesthesia as the book went on. I also liked it because the book teaches you valuable lessons, such as the fact that being different is not necessarily bad.
I recommend this to people who like to read about something new (in this case, synesthesia).
