"My name is Marisol McDonald, and I don't match. At least that's what everyone tells me."
PJS K through 2 students read this book and, for the most part, agreed that matching is overrated. What's wrong with eating peanut butter and jelly burritos? Why wouldn't a kid want to play more than one game at recess? What could be better than being a soccer playing pirate?
One day Marisol McDonald decides that she is going to match and she realizes an important lesson about herself. This biracial, bilingual, Peruvian-Scottish-American girl doesn't match. And the PJS kids think that's just fine.
