Melody Brooks is a girl with cerebral palsy who can’t talk, walk or write. Despite having a photographic memory and being very smart, she’s trapped in a body that doesn’t work. Melody is in Special Ed in school even though she belongs in a regular or advanced classroom. Life changes when she gets a computer that can do the talking for her. Now, she can tell her family she loves them as well as communicate in school. However, Melody faces continuing discrimination because of her appearance, especially when she tries out for the Whiz Kids team, a group of students who compete in trivia contests against other schools. Eventually, she makes the team because her test results are so high, but continues to fight for acceptance from the students as well as the teachers. This is a wonderful children’s book about inclusion much in the vein of R.J. Palacio’s Wonder. It’s beautifully written and provides an important lesson in both tolerance and not judging a book by its cover.
