Polar Opposites by Erik Brooks
"Alex is loud. Zina is quiet. Alex likes sour things. Zina likes sweet things. Alex is messy. Zina is neat."
These two friends are opposite in everything, from their color to their home location but somehow they seem to get along enough each year to "meet in the middle", literally, at the Galapagos Islands. Cute book that addresses both the idea of opposites as well as friendship and makes the connection that opposites CAN still be friends. Great book for discussion about friendship and accepting differences.
