Queen Shulamit never expected to inherit the throne of the tropical land of Perach so young. At twenty, grief-stricken and fatherless, she's also coping with being the only lesbian she knows after her sweetheart ran off for an unknown reason. Not to mention, she's the victim of severe digestive problems that everybody thinks she's faking. When she meets Rivka, an athletic and assertive warrior from the north who wears a mask and pretends to be a man, she finds the source of strength she needs so desperately.

Unfortunately for her, Rivka is straight, but that's okay -- Shulamit needs a surrogate big sister just as much as she needs a girlfriend. Especially if the warrior's willing to take her around the kingdom on the back of her dragon in search of other women who might be open to same-sex romance. The real world outside the palace is full of adventure, however, and the search for a royal girlfriend quickly turns into a rescue mission when they discover a temple full of women turned to stone by an evil sorcerer.

Read this a while ago, remember it being very cute and original. In a world where traditional publishing doesn't give us nearly as many Jewish, gay, and gay Jewish protagonists as we would like, The Second Mango is a breath of fresh air. However, the writing style is a bit juvenile or awkward at times. Still, it's a nice, short read for anyone who needs a break from NOT reading about Jewish lesbian queens on dragon-riding road trips.
