I named this blog THE CIRCLE OF LIFE... because the beginning of the book Melody was sad and depressed. Then Melody took flight of her life, She Grew Wings And Flew Off To Heaven. But those wings were cracking :( Her life became, not so good, when the team left her at the airport. Her Sister got hit by there car, or mini van. Don't worry Penny is okay, a broken leg bumps and buses. If you think about the stuff that has happened in Melody's life , if you like shapes you might think... "oh thats kinda like a circle!" THERE FOR THE CIRCLE OF MELODY'S LIFE. ( only the part we read about...)
After the big game all of the kids went out for nice dinner. A CRAZY DINNER! So here is some quick information about chapter 26. So first off the team goes to the dinner at a restaurant that didn't have a weel-chair ramp and the elevator was broken. Melody's mom had at lift up the weel-chair One step at a time... After they Got up the stairs Melody's mom had to feed Melody. No one at school knew Melody cant feed her self, Melody dint finish her food. she took it home so she wouldn't be made fun of. Also Clair puked on Mr.Dimming shoes! His brand new ones. AND THAT WAS THERE CRAZY DINNER DATE! if you have ever had a crazy dinner date comment yours! I can't wait to hear some of them...
I think for chapter 25, Melody and her team, will be very close to beating the other team, but when the last question comes they wont get it. I, sadly think they will lose. But i think they will relized they are not going to the champion ship game. I think that moly and clair wil still be mean to them and I finally think the team might do something to up set Melody.
We we're told to answer this question:
If Melody gets on the t.v. Show should the show change some rules for Melody? Or do you think Melody should change? Why?
I think the game show should change a few rules. Because...
1- it's not fair, Melody is a slow typer and can not type the answer as fast as some kids can say it.
2- Melody can't change to be on a show. And she shouldn't have to!
3- the game show should be fair and not judge Melody.
That's just SOME of my thoughts!
My predictions for the rest of the book I think Melody will make the T.V. show. But Melody wont be able to answer anything because Melody cannot type very fast, or answer very fast. I think Melody going on the show will not make her popular, I think she will come back from the show same Melody, but have more confidence. I hope Clair learns that Melody is just as great as her. Looks don't matter. Melody ROCKS . she showed me no matter how you look or who you are go for what you want, don't let a girl like Clair tell her who to be. Even though Melody has to still learn about what she is doing and she should keep doing that.
Team Hoyt is Son and Father, Rick and Dick Hoyt. They are a huge inspiration for me and lots of more people! It all started by one day rick said to his dad "Will you run 5k with me?" Dick said yes then Rick wanted to run a marathon and the a triathlon, of course dick said yes. So they ran and started to be known for who they were. Dick thought they would be noticed but not as much as they were. As they ran more they inspired more and soon there was people volunteering to push people who couldn't walk.
I think Melody would be upset that Rick has a talking machine.
I have a big connection to the book because when we went to the aquarium in grade 6 and had a sleepover at the I was hanging out with my friend and then my other friend got mad at me because I didn't hang out with her. This is kinda of what happened to Melody because Clair and Molly were taking to rose and got mad at her because she was there with Melody. Melody didn't feel good about them saying stuff like i think her aid is cheating for her, I can relate to that because at my old school their were "mean girls" just like Clair and Molly. And those girls thought I was cheating on a math test because I needed help from the E.A! But I didn't cheat.
In chapter 10 Melody talked a bit about her sisters little stuffed monkey or was it a squirrel they cant tell what it is, any way its brown and really beat-up its name was Doodle. Melody was talking about how, Melody and her mom have such a special connection and how Melody's mom knew what Melody was trying to say. Her mom also knew when she had to go to the bathroom. Melody also talked about how she got a Garfield book and how she made her dad read it to her. And how she wished someone could write an air bubble above her head so people would know what she wants to say. She's kind of like Garfield in a way how she can only make noises and she can't talk and Garfield is a cat so he can't talk. She talks about her dad and how he didn't understand her when Melody wanted a Big Mac and a Vanilla milk Shake, and how those are her favourite things, she loves fast food!
Penny. Penny is Melody's brand new baby sister, who is like a rock star. Melody thinks she is as useless as a doll she got for christmas and when she took the doll out of the box the arm fell off. there for she thinks her parents want to return her. Melody cant talk or walk, and when Penny was a baby she could not walk or talk either. But as Penny grew up she learn how to roll and say words like mom, dad and dee-dee witch was short for Melody. Melody started talking about how cute Penny is and then she started talking only about Penny. Penny this Penny that all she talked about was how Penny is perfect. I think Melody thinks her parents like Penny more.
Please Comment your thoughts!
The author Sharon Draper doesn't want us to feel sorry for Melody. After the first 8 chapters I don't feel sorry for Melody because Melody has a great life, theres lots of different things about Melody's life that are just great!!! For starters, Melody got a puppy and the puppy can not speak just like Melody, the dog can only bark and Melody cam only scream they are very alike! Melody has a very best friend who is there for her through thick and thin, when Melody feel out of the chair, the dog tried and kept trying to get Melody's mom. I also do not feel bad for Melody because melody has a great mom and dad and her neighbour, they under stand that Melody is super smart. Melody is an awesome girl who even though is not able to talk and walk, she has something even better she's got a best friend (her dog) and a loving family and her super nice super sweet neighbour, who understands. Melody has an awesome life!!!!!
