    The astounding story of one girl's journey from war victim to UNICEF Special Representative. As a child in a small rural village in Sierra Leone, Mariatu Kamara lived peacefully surrounded by family and friends. Rumors of rebel attacks were no more than a distant worry. But when 12-year-old Mariatu set out for a neighboring village, she never arrived. Heavily armed rebel soldiers attacked and tortured Mariatu. During this brutal act of senseless violence they cut off both of her hands.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would absolutely recommend this book, audiobook. Perfectly writen and well read.


    What other book might you compare The Bite of the Mango to and why?

    I would compare this book with A thousand Splendid Suns, because it is both about girls who try to survive the extremity in the world.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book made me cry and want to stand up and do something to change the world, even though just a little bit.
