For many, the 1950s were a time of prosperity—but also conformity. So what’s a girl to do when her big imagination can’t stop her from standing out?
Maryellen always hopes to make a grand impression. Whether it’s a front door like no other in her neighborhood or the ideal dress for the first day of school, Maryellen wants to show she’s extraordinary, not extra ordinary.
Follow Maryellen’s adventures as she learns how her desire to overachieve can sometimes overwhelm her true goals. Only when she focuses her talents on what matters does her ability to stand out yield outstanding results.
—Valerie Tripp, author of the Maryellen series
Despite setbacks at school and home—some of her own making—Maryellen models what it means to be a girl of strong character, displaying ingenuity, originality, and determination.
