Graduates of the Ramona Quimby series will adore Meena as she navigates the triumphs and challenges of family, friendship, and personal secrets in this charming middle grade debut.
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 and she experiences an unexpected and scary incident at breakfast, nothing can fight off the gray.
That’s when Meena comes up with a plan to 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.
About the Author
Praise For Meena Meets Her Match (The Meena Zee Books)…
— Kirkus Reviews
"Meena’s story will have strong appeal to those who have personal experience with epilepsy and will educate those who know nothing about it."
— School Library Connection
"Manternach draws from her knowledge of her own nine-year-old daughter's chronic condition in telling Meena's story, adding a solid foundation to a story about how to grab all the colors in life."
