Family of choice

Family of choice is very important to the themes in The Second Mango and its sequels.the second mango main cast

I wanted to celebrate the many types of love that make family–birth relatives, romantic love, in-laws, stepfamily, and those friends who become family because of what they mean to us. At the beginning of the series, on page one of the first book, Shulamit (in the purple) is mourning her father and feels completely¬†alone. By the end of the book, she has a sweetheart and people willing to step in and be her family, and as the series grows that family expands in wonderful new directions.
