From multiple award-winning author Sharon Draper comes a story that will forever change how we all look at anyone with a disability, perfect for fans of RJ Palacio’s Wonder.
Eleven-year-old Melody is not like most people. She can’t walk. She can’t talk. She can’t write. All because she has cerebral palsy. But she also has a photographic memory; she can remember every detail of everything she has ever experienced. She’s the smartest kid in her whole school, but NO ONE knows it. Most people—her teachers, her doctors, her classmates—dismiss her as mentally challenged because she can’t tell them otherwise. But Melody refuses to be defined by her disability. And she’s determined to let everyone know it…somehow.

I read this book in a library and I loved it!!!!!
Omg I absolutely luv this book I gave it to my teacher to read I loved it so much. But it also is very sad when my teacher read it she cried a couple of times while she was reading it aloud. If you get it I hope you really love the book like me. But it will not hurt my feelings if you don't because I understand people have different favorite books.
