Meena Meets Her Match

Meena's life is full of color. She wears vibrant clothes, eats every shade of the rainbow, and plucks eye-catching trash from the neighborhood recycling bins. But when Meena's best friend, Sofí­a, stops playing with her at recess, she's not sure why. Then, Meena has a seizure which requires a hospital stay and testing — and a diagnosis of epilepsy. Now it seems like nothing can fight off the gray.

As she learns to manage her conditions, Meena comes up with a plan to make things better: she'll create the BEST and most COLORFUL Valentine's Day Box in the class. With the help of her cousin, Eli, and her stuffed zebra, Raymond, Meena discovers that the best way to break through the blah is to let her true colors shine — and that being a good friend means looking at how your own actions affect others. Graduates of the Ramona Quimby series will adore Meena Zee as she navigates the triumphs and challenges of family, friendship, and personal secrets in this charming illustrated chapter book. Meena's adventures continue in Never Fear, Meena's Here.

"As Meena waits for a diagnosis to explain it, she continues on as her creative self, building a milk-jug igloo with her adoring little sister, Rosie, and their nature-loving cousin Eli. When Meena learns the truth about why she and Sofía aren’t friends anymore, she discovers that everyone struggles with something, even people who seem to be the best at everything.... A likable protagonist helms this appealing school story." — Kirkus Reviews
