Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pure Art This author has incredible talent. She wove words together into an intricate and beautiful web as if she was Athena herself. Miss Wendy has somehow made her words so alive they speak, and when you listen, you become like Mia; sounds turning into colour and then further into scenes. This author is who really made me realize that literature is art, if you know how to make it. This book was unreal, please read it and every soul a star. You'll regret nothing, or everything.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A funny, but touching story!!!!!!!! Mia seems to be the NORMAL kid in her family...her brother keeps a chart of all the hamburgers he's ever eaten and her sister dies her hair different colors every week!!! But Mia's keeping a secret from everyone, sounds, numbers, and letters have a color for her! Everyone thinks she named her cat Mango because of his orange colored eyes, but Mia named him Mango because to her the sound of his purrs and wheezes are various kinds of yellow-orange!!! When trouble in school forces Mia to reveal her secret she feels like a total freak and the WEIRDEST one in her family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tremendous!!! This book is really really really (reallyx1000) good. You can feel the emotions stirring in you as, the character faces more and more to life. The protagonist of this story, Mia, has colours for everything- numbers, letters, and even names. As the story unfolds she loses more of herself, and tries to find herself. You also find yourself going through all the emotions the character is feeling aswell. I HIGHLY recommened this book for anyone who wants a good read.
