I think cause its gone in a complete circle cause at the start of the book, Melody had no friends and it was really hard to understand her and at school she was in a class with kids with disabilities. She hated the class and they ugly snowman at christmas. Then she got switched to a different classroom with other kids. She met Rose, Conner, Claire and Molly in that class, and her teacher was Mr.Dimming. Then after a while her sister Penny came along and she got Elvira her medi-talker. When she showed it to her classmates, they fliped out. And at they end she had some friends and her world was better than before.
Melody is in her room still upset about the day before. Her dad comes in with a ice badge on his hand, and he asks her if she is ok. Then tells her that her team got 9th place with a baby trophy. Then a few moments later, her mother comes in and asks if she wants to stay home that day. She shakes her head. Melody want to be a strong girl and not be a baby. So her mom gets her bathed and dress and takes her down the stairs. Fixes her breakfast and feeds her one spoon at a time. Then Penny comes in and has a runny nose, and Butterscotch was scratching at the basement door. The phone rings and her mom answers is, it was her work telling her that they needed her in at the moment. Later her mom was stressing to get her into the car and ready to go. But then Melody started jerking because her mom forgot her book bag in the house. Melody's dad and Penny were at the door with Melody's book bag in his hand. Her mom growls and busted out the car door and gets to the front door and clutches the bag from his hand. Slams the door and starts the car. Then Melody sees a flash of yellow across her yard. Melody jerks and kicks and scratches her moms hand. Her mom slaps her on the legs and tells her to chill out. Then pulls the lever to reverse. She starts backing out and then out of the sudden, they feel a big thud!! Her mom gets out and looks under her car and SCREAMS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OH NO!!!!! PENNY!!!!
IT THE BIG DAY!!!!!!!!!! Melody is very excited, her and her parents are going to Washington DC with her Quiz team for the Quiz Game aka Good Morning America. At school, Mr.Dimming announces the "The On The Air Team" and the "Alternates". Melody is on the team and Claire is one the alternates. ITS HERE!!!!!! The big day is now encountered, Melody and her parent are up and ready to go to the airport. Mrs.V said she would look after Penny and Butterscotch. When they get to the airport they have no problem finding a handicap spot ing the airport parking.
Then they run to the lady in the flight attendant uniform and the paying counter. They check in and tell where they are going. Then a real big shock, they lady tell them that all the flight were cancelled including the one to DC. Her mother was furious and asked if there was any other flights to DC at any airport. Melody's mother tells her that Melody is on the quiz team and they were competing at the Quiz Games. The Lady tells them that she saw that team in the airport and 9:00am. Melody's mother was in shocked and asked "They left early?". They out of the sudden, Melody father turned away and punched the wall. Then they went home and Melody cried in her pillow. Then her mom walked in with the phone and heard she was talking to Mr.Dimming. And her mom was furious and hung up.
What does Melody learn about friendship and the relationships of children working together as she practices and competes with the quiz team? What does she learn about herself?
She learn that everyone works amazing with a team and they make more progress, Melody also learns the team needs her and that everyone is starting to like her and that no one really notices that she a disabled person.
Melody went to a restaurant with her mom with the other kids on the team, it took her so long to get up the stairs.....
Conner, Claire, Rose were there and saved a spot for her. Luckily she was able to fit into the table with medi-talker and her wheelchair. Everyones parents were there and sitting with their kids. While everyone was ordering, Melody was think about food and how she was so hungry but for some reason she didn't want to eat though. Conner ordered Steak, Rose ordered pasta with extra cheese and Clair and Molly ordered Lasuania, Melody got mac'n'cheese and her mom got baked fish. When melody ordered her food with her medi-talker, the waitress looked suprise and acted like Melody said those words. When they got their food everyone dug into their meal. Melody couldn't do that so her mom helped her one spoon at a time. When they were done, Amanda asked "So....what makes you Melody your friend Clair?". She didn't answer, "I don't feel so good" claire said. They she barfed all over Mr.Dimmings shoes. Claire's mom rushed to the bathroom. That was so far o
If Melody makes it to the T.V show, should they change the rules of the show to fit Melody or should Melody have to change for the show? why?
I think they should change some of the rules because melody doesn't have a lot of the answers programmed on her medi-talker. And it takes a while to type down they answer for Melody so yeah, I think they should change some of the rules of the show.
I think something bad is going to happen to Melody because I think Claire and Molly are up to something to hurt Melody. Maybe they will humiliate her at the quiz games and break her Medi-talker, Elvira. Then melody won't be able to communicate her answer. But I think a miracle will happen and Melody will be able to speak and win the games. Then Molly and Claire will be busted and get in trouble by the teacher, Melody will have a voice and it will be a happy ending. So that is my prediction.
1- Rose because I get really bad marks on test.
2- Melody cause I get really excited when my mom wins something.
3- Mean girls that are mean and kinda bully me
4- My parents get mad when people are saying mean things about me.
5- I love to learn about Fish and aquatics
Those are most of my connection of these chapters so far........
Me and Melody have connections like............
We both love, love, LOVE fast food.
We both love Mc'donalds. I LOVE MC'DONALD's
I have problems with getting my dad to understand me.
Sister banging on my door like big and small foot steps.
