Melody is a young girl who just wants to be heard. With many odds against her and only a few loved ones by her side, she continues to persevere and make the best of her life the only way she knows how…that is, until she is exposed to something that could possibly change her life.

I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys realistic fiction.
