2013 Bluestem nominee I really enjoyed this book! Melody is a fifth-grader who has cerebral palsy, which has left her unable to talk. However, ever since she was a little girl, Melody has learned what words mean, and she has a lot to say, but has never been able to say them. As an almost eleven-year-old, she has never had a real way to express herself and tell people how she feels or what she is thinking. Although to look at her, people see someone with a debilitating handicap, but inside, she is just like everyone else. It's hard for her to be in a school with her peers, and know they all think of her as "different". If she only had a way to communicate. A very special teacher-assistant at school helps Melody find a way, but it doesn't end up with as positive results as Melody thought. This was a thought provoking book that brings to light a controversial topic: how do we treat people who look differently than us? This book is recommended for mature fourth grade readers or older. This book would also be great as a read aloud for other readers, and it could spark some great conversations between parents and children.
