Melody, who lost her voice, has many things to say, but she can't. She was born without a voice and she only has control over her thumbs. Melody is in a class with other kids with disabilities.The teacher teaches the students things that preschoolers learn. Finally, Melody had a "tornado explosion". The teacher didn't know what happened. She called Melody's mom, who could not believe that the teacher was still teaching the letter B. She asked for the teaching CD and handed the teacher $5.00. She broke the CD and all of the kids started cheering, and Melody did her happy shake.
I didn't like the end of the book. Melody was left behind on a trip to a big competition in Wahsington, DC and the team lost the competition. Her best friend was crying, and her little sister was in a leg brace after an accident. It was a sad and confusing ending.
I would probably recommend this book for older kids. It was complicated.
