“Her tree always yielded the sweetest mangoes in Hilo town.” 💜

Thank you so much harperviabooks for gifting me a copy of this book! What a beautiful, lyrical novel set in Hilo, Hawaii among mango trees, volcanoes and sugar plantations. I was transported to the lush setting with a beautiful cast of characters. It’s a quiet novel but it’s full of love, loss, pain and family. Ultimately, I love that it shows chosen family can be as strong, beautiful and loving as a family you’re born into. And for some of these characters, friends that are family are the only family they have. I love that this community is tight-knit and they are there for each other through life’s ups and downs. I really fell in love with these characters, especially with Koji whose huge heart stole my heart 💜
