Exclamation A Mango Shaped Space

Okay, this is a really good book. I would give it 5 stars.

I'm just going to post the blurb.

Everyone thinks that I named my cat Mango because of his orange eyes, but that's not the case. I named him Mango because the sounds of his ourrs and his wheezes and his meows are all various shades of yellow-orange....
Mia appeares to be the most normal kid in her family. Her younger brother keeps a chart of all the hamburgers he's eaten. Her older sister dyes her hair a different color every week. But Mia knows she's far from ordinary. She is keeping something from everyone: sounds, numbers, and letters have color for her. When school trouble finally forces Mia to reveal her secret, she feels like a freak. She embarks on an intense journey f self-dicovery, and by the time she realizes she has isolated herself from everyone who cares about her, it's almost too late. She has to lose something very special in order to find herself.
