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 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

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

"Getten's handling of potentially tough topics like family, disability, and religion is spot-on, weaving important discussions into an adventurous, summery plot that just keeps going. --SLJ, Starred Review

"Getten lures readers in. Readers occupy pretty much the same position as the island kids, puzzling over clues and gossip but unable to pry out the truth." --The Bulletin, Starred Review

"A touching novel about letting go of the past and moving on." --Kirkus Reviews
