But that’s the life of eleven-year-old Melody. Melody cannot walk, talk, eat, or even use the washroom on her own. But she can think. She has a dire thirst for knowledge, information, and ideas. She's filled with so many things inside that she cannot get out of her mind! How to help her? Melody is an inspiration to us all. Read it and share Melody's world -- it will make you laugh, cry, think, and hopefully, make you change the way you look at life's curveballs.
