    Matt and Mandy

    I hate how straight my hair is. I wish I had curly hair like Katie. And long legs like Abby. And I’m too skinny. And …

    Whoa. Wait. Let me show you something in my room.

    When I was young I didn’t like how I looked compared to other girls. Then I saw this—

    We all know how pretty roses are …

    But so are daisies … and lots of other flowers!

    I see what you mean. Thanks, Mom.

    My hair’s curly, my legs are longer, and I’m not skinny anymore.

    So, do you think I’m prettier?
