Review Detail4.4 12
Every word, sound, and smell has a color for Mia, and it came as quite a shock to her when she found that most people didn't see these strange colors like she did. Mia is a thirteen-year-old girl who happens to see colors for all letters, words, sounds and smells. She has lost her beloved grandfather fairly recently, and then her prized cat Mango. Throughout the story, Mia tries to learn more about herself and her condition, synesthesia. She does so, and in the process comes to terms with her friends, family, mind, and, eventually, after her cat dies near the end of the book, his death.
