    I felt like a terrible person the entire time I read this book because I disliked it so much, especially since I think that it s an important book and a really thoughtful book in many ways I was impressed with the author for writing a story from the perspective of someone with cerebral palsy, and thought she did a great job of expressing the difficulties of living with that condition The intentions were good, but wow, I couldn t stand Melody If someone talked like she does throughout the book I felt like a terrible person the entire time I read this book because I disliked it so much, especially since I think that it s an important book and a really thoughtful book in many ways I was impressed with the author for writing a story from the perspective of someone with cerebral palsy, and thought she did a great job of expressing the difficulties of living with that condition The intentions were good, but wow, I couldn t stand Melody If someone talked like she does throughout the book that didn t have cerebral palsy, then no reader would like her at all But since she does, I m supposed to think she s wonderful She was completely arrogant and unlikable, and I never felt sympathetic for her because I dis...
