Eleven-year-old Melody has a photographic memory. Her head is like a video camera that is always recording. Always. And thereAs no delete button. SheAs the smartest kid in her whole schoolAbut no one knows it. Most peopleAher teachers and doctors includedAdonAt think sheAs capable of learning, and up until recently her school days consisted of listening to the same preschool-level alphabet lessons again and again and again. If only she could speak up, if only she could tell people what she thinks and knows . . . but she canAt, because Melody canAt talk. She canAt walk. She canAt write.
Being stuck inside her head is making Melody go out of her mindAthat is, until she discovers something that will allow her to speak for the first time ever. At last Melody has a voice . . . but not everyone around her is ready to hear it.
