Mango All the Time
by Fracaswell Hyman
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?
PRAISEPraise for Mango All the Time:
"Mango remains the down-to-earth young person fans fell in love with in previous books: a fun, relatable character to follow through the ups and downs of discovering what life is really like for Black people in Hollywood, how to stand up for oneself, and the importance of valuing true friends and family. Glitz and glamour tempered by real-life concerns make this finale a winner." — Kirkus Reviews
Praise for Mango Delight:
“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 -
