In this first book of her series, Maryellen Larkin wants to stand out. But with five brothers and sisters, it’s not so easy.

Giving herself a haircut doesn’t go quite the way she expects—and when she draws a cartoon of her teacher on the first day of fourth grade, she draws more attention than she wants! At least her drawing skills help her make an interesting new friend. Together, they might be able to win the Geography Bee—but only if Maryellen can find a way to help her old friends get past their prejudice.

This audiobook includes a historical “Looking Back” section.
