The Bite of the Mango

Cover: 'The Bite of the Mango'

Staff Review: "The Bite of the Mango" by Mariatu Kamara, Susan McClelland

★★★★

This memoir of Mariatu will draw you in. It is about Mariatu's life in Sierra Leone (an African country) and subsequent move to Canada. Mariatu lived though a civil war in her native country, but while she and many others have lived to tell their story they also lost their hands. It is a book about survival and overcoming a disability.
