In the exciting conclusion to the Mango Delight trilogy, Mango goes to Hollywood and becomes the star of a television series!
Mango Delight Fuller is ready for her next big break, which just might be in Hollywood! So she heads to California and auditions for a new television series. As she and her family settle in, she meets new friends who also end up competing with Mango for roles. Unfortunately, Mango’s big screen test does not go well. But when the star drops out of the show, Mango’s new manager convinces the producers to rework the show with Mango as the star. The new series, Mango All the Time (she’s a girl who sings and time travels), goes into production and Mango must face the realities of success. Will she be able to juggle a star’s extra-heavy workload, while keeping egos in check, heartbreak at bay, and managing the changes to her family’s life?
“Hyman marries traditional tween elements with a fresh and original plot, and his multicultural cast sparkles with individuality and authenticity. . . . Hyman’s supporting characters, both kids and adults, are vivid and dynamic. Mango is as delightful as her middle name indicates, and middle-grade readers will easily recognize their own experiences in her friendship struggles. This is Hyman’s first novel; here’s hoping it’s not his last.” —Booklist (starred review)
“[T]he characters . . . are deftly crafted, and their relationships play out in ways that carefully avoid cliché. . . . Mango’s supportive family is also well drawn, particularly her comforting Jamaican immigrant father and her no-nonsense, former athlete African-American mom, who’s a loving but demanding figure. Kids who’d settle for making it through middle school unscathed but still dream of shining in it will find a kindred spirit in Mango.” —Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
