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.

 "Manternach does an amazing job helping us to understand epilepsy from a young person's perspective." -A.M. Canada, Vice President of Epilepsy Families of Southeast Wisconsin

 "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
