Eleven-year-old Melody is not like most people. She can’t walk. She can’t talk. She can’t write. All because she has cerebral palsy. But she also has a photographic memory; she can remember every detail of everything she has ever experienced. She’s the smartest kid in her whole school, but NO ONE knows it. Most people—her teachers, her doctors, her classmates—dismiss her as mentally challenged because she can’t tell them otherwise. But Melody refuses to be defined by her disability. And she’s determined to let everyone know it…somehow.

Un roman très touchant sur le handicap, et surtout sur l’énorme combat que va mener Melody pour, enfin, se faire « entendre » et communiquer avec ses proches et les autres. Du haut de ses onze ans, cette jeune fille nous donne un belle leçon de vie, et surtout de courage. Une lecture coup de coeur !
