Stacy can't wait to start her new class project, making an "About-Me" box.  Into it will go special things that she likes.  Jiwon's putting a scrap of her old baby dress in her About-Me box.  Eddie's putting pictures of food in his.  But Stacy can't think of one thing to put in hers.

How can Stacy make her About-Me box as special as Jiwon's or Eddie's?  She has to do something fast.  Can she turn her box of troubles into a box of delights?
