    SPOILERS IN REVIEW I love this book. It's a sad but honest representation of struggles that people similar to Melody face. It's ending is very sad, but fairly a good representation of what happens. I do wish we got to see her make other friends.

    limechu's book review was featured in Fish in a Tree.
    (this review is also in a book report I wrote so if my teacher sees this hi) So many factors in this book make it 5/5. One factor is the way the author expresses the theme of “just because you have a flaw doesn’t mean you’re just defined by that flaw.” Throughout the book, our protagonist Ally, with the help of her teacher Mr. Davids, uncover that Ally is so much more than her dyslexia. She’s funny, intelligent, and a talented artist. She’s more than the bullies think of her. The bullying in this book is also very well-written and realistic. The main bully, Shay, hurts Ally with her words, and shapes Ally’s view of herself. In chapter 29, Shay draws Ally with a dunce’s cap. She is scolded and made to erase it, but not before Ally can see it. When Ally sees it, she agrees. It’s sad, but realistic. A lot of people’s views of themselves are shaped by others, leading to low self esteem. The last reason I’d rate this book 5/5 is because of its ending. There’s no easy ending that makes everything perfect, Ally can’t magically read, but that’s fine. Ally finds a way of learning with her teacher that works for her. She knows its going to take effort to learn to read, but she can see her own improvement. In real life, there is no perfect ending, all we can do is realize that and try to make our ending as happy as we can. We can’t fix everything, but we can try. We can dream of a happy ending, “But these mind movies won’t go into my sketchbook of impossible things, because I know they will actually happen.”
