Description

Get ready, world--Mango's about to become a STAR In this sequel to Mango Delight, the delightful heroine's adventures--and misadventures--continue as she prepares to make her off-Broadway debut.

Where Mango goes, drama is sure to follow It's summer break, and Mango is content to spend her time babysitting her brother, hanging with her friend Izzy, and binge-watching movies late into the night. Then she runs into her drama teacher, who has some big news: their middle school play Yo, Romeo is headed to the stage in New York City . . . and he wants Mango for the lead role After overcoming her mom's initial reluctance--and with some firm rules established--Mango goes off to Brooklyn to stay with her Aunt Zendaya in a teeny apartment and prepare for her theatrical debut. It's the opportunity of a lifetime, but soon Mango must confront homesickness, insecurity, and the all-important question of what it means to be a good friend--especially when you're far away from the people you love.
