The book is about an eleven year old girl who has a photographic memory, but since she was born with cerebral palsy, Melody, 10, has never spoken a word. She is a brilliant fifth grader trapped in an uncontrollable body.
Like Wonder, this is a great book to raise awareness of students with special needs.
