Marisol McDonald Doesn't Match / Marisol McDonald no combina

By Publishers Weekly

The vivacious Peruvian-Scottish-American protagonist of this bilingual book has brown skin and hair ‘the color of fire.’ Her friends tell her that she ‘doesn’t match,’ because of her appearance and her wardrobe, but when Marisol tones down her style, she realizes that it doesn’t feel right. Palacio’s collage work incorporates newsprint, vibrant patterns, and Peruvian motifs, echoing the message about being true to oneself.
