"The Memory String" by Eve Bunting is about a girl who is going to be starting school. She wants the other children to like her and to make a good impression. She wakes up with a Bad Case of Stripes all over her face. She goes to school and becomes a distraction for the other students. She eventually becomes cured but in being cured she learns a valuable lesson about herself. I recommend this book because it is an easy read that teaches children and adults a valuable lesson. It is alright to be happy with yourself and who you are.
