  2. My ten year old spent several weeks in a wheelchair last year after breaking her femur She got a tiny glimpse of what it must be like for other children who have to be in wheelchairs all the time Since then she has been obsessed with books about children who have disabilities because she felt that one experience opened her eyes to what it s like for people with challenges she doesn t have, so when she read this main character had to be in a wheelchair, it was a no brainer She wanted this book ri [...]

  5. I am a fourth grade teacher, and for the past 15 years, I have read this book to EVERY class I have had The students get SO into the story of Melody, a disabled fifth grade student This is not the happy ending feel good story but rather a story of how people are judged simply for how they appear Imagine the frustration of a main character who is brilliant, but with cerebral palsy has a difficult time communicating her thoughts, wishes and beliefs A very realistic story which will have your stude [...]


  6. This book is amazing for helping my 5th graders get into the mind and life of a severely handicapped girl I think it s safe to say it will be life changing for them Wonderfully written with great word choices, and very high interest Since we are reading this as a class, I sometimes have to check their book bags to make SURE no one is smuggling it home Ha I love telling kids they may NOT read than 4 or whatever chapters This is the first year I ve used it, and I expect to follow up with an autobi [...]


  7. This is an excellent book My Year 6 students read it every year as part of a unit of study about disability and they love it It teaches a valuable lesson about how people with disabilities can be viewed and treated, even by those who should know better, and it encourages empathy and understanding.


  8. I started reading this yesterday as quick read and to try getting myself back into reading itself I am much older then the age is given but I never let that bother me because I could not read until I was 13, to me it s like reliving my childhood dream being able to read stories Anyway back to the book.It was such an easy read and pleasant but it also had quite a series topic involved into the story, from an adult teen prospective it is an eye opener to a world I never knew about Melody the main [...]
