Description: A little girl celebrates her multiracial background and pride in her individuality through a creative and non-conformist attitude.

Marisol McDonald loves her fire-red hair and her brown, freckled skin, feels artistic pleasure in pairing polka-dotted shirts with striped pants and prefers PB&J burritos in her lunchbox. In a world where everyone tries to put this biracial, Peruvian-Scottish-American girl into a box, Marisol McDonald doesn't match. Until one day, confidence diminished, Marisol decides to conform and arrives at school in the same-colored clothes and eats a peanut butter & jelly sandwich on mushy bread. Bored and unhappy, Marisol is delighted when her teacher gives her a note that boosts her self-esteem. The bilingual, first-person story works well in both English and Spanish despite, as explained in an editorís note, the difficulty of finding the most appropriate Spanish term for the titleís English phrase.
