One of Us

by Peggy Moss

In ONE OF US, by Peggy Moss and illustrated by Penny Weber, Carmen tells Roberta on her first day at a new school that she’s one of them. Roberta gladly sits with the rest of the straight-up-hair girls until she hears they don’t play on the monkey bars. Roberta loves the monkey bars and leaps at the chance to swing with the monkey-bar posse, until she hears they don’t carry flowered lunch-boxes like she does. Roberta moves from group to group, just trying to be herself, until it seems she doesn’t fit in anywhere. Then Roberta discovers some kids just like her, everyone’s different and they like it that way!
