Lavender bravely described her struggles. She did this while keeping her writing straightforward so everyone could read and comprehend it. Additionally, the narration is passably fluid, facilitating understanding of her experience.

Mangoes are an integral part of her life, which is why they are mentioned in the title of this memoir, in which she takes you on an enthralling journey of perseverance, steadfastness, courage, and survival. Her experience makes you understand how important it is to have a supportive family. She has also highlighted some instructive insights like – we don’t accept labels because they don’t define who we are. You have the influence to choose who you surround yourself with, yet unhealthy individuals will always give you misery. Children should be cherished, encouraged, and told to have high dreams. Anyone suffering from trauma or abuse should know they are loved. The book’s most important message is that once we let go of our labels, we may learn more about who we are and the purpose of living a meaningful life.
