I thought that the first two chapter we read was quite sad. How would I feel if i had the same disabled part like Melody. My dad's old work friends daughter who is 15 has the non ability to walk or move her arms. She can talk but that is about it. She can't even go to the washroom, it is really hard for her to go to the washroom because it is a different process. So I do think that the book for the first part of it. So basically she is just a normal girl just like anybody else, except..............she is straped to a wheelchair, and cannot talk.
