The Bite Of The Mango

For my ISU, im reading "the bite of the mango". its based on a true story about a girl named Mariatu who lives with her uncle and auntie. The story is set in Sierra Leona ( somewhere in Africa . The story is mainly about Mariatu being attacked by the rebels and she has to deal with the new environment she has to face. she is very lucky because many people helped her survive throughout the book. One main topic in this book is survival. I enjoyed reading this book because it makes me think how lucky i am to be in Canada and not in a situation where a war is occurring and i am not threatened by anyone. I highly recomened this book to people who like to read true stories about survival from war. Best book ive read this year .


  1. Good analysis Marjone! It seems that our ISU novels have a very similar idea and topic. They share the same statement that for one to overcome the hardships in life one needs help from others to do so.

  2. Sounds like a good book with a solid synopsis! Can't wait to see your presentation.

  3. Marjone, you have made solid progress on your ISU. I'm interested in finding out what secondary texts you use to support your thesis.
