She can save the world - but she can't roast a marshmallow!
An hilarious story about a heroic young Scout who is plagued by her desire for perfection.
Loretta is perfect. From knowing the scout manual by heart, to pressing 375 pounds -- to saving the world every Tuesday -- there is nothing Loretta doesn't excel in. She has earned every known merit badge in the universe - except for one -- The Golden Marshmallow Badge. She can't roast a marshmallow to save her life. Overcome by her failure to acheive, Loretta is reminded by her grandmother that even the most perfect people are flawed. With this new-found knowledge, Loretta gains the courage to accept her imperfect self -- and go on saving the world.
