Monique likes to be different.  But it sure is hard to be different when you go to a school where all the students have to wear uniforms.   But Monique is determined.  One day, she comes to school wearing a big red hat.  The next day, all the other students come in wearing hats.  She tries glasses -- the other kids wear glasses.  Shoes, socks, nail polish.  Whatever she tries, the others just do the same thing the next day.  Will Monique ever find a way to be unique?
