About the book
The book I read was A Mango Shape Space written by Wendy Mass. The book is about a girl named Mia. She has a disease that is called synesthesia. Synesthesia is where you see colors when you see and hear names, numbers, and words.

Mia is the main character of the book. The other characters in the book are Mia's sister and brother, her cat and her best friend, Jenna. No one else in Mia's family has synesthesia. Her condition makes it hard for her in school. Reading and math are hard for her because she sees all the numbers with the colors in her face.
