Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
This book was awesome because: it is about a girl named Melody, who has a photographic memory and cerebral palsy, leaving her unable to walk or talk on her own. It is so interesting to read all the things Melody thinks, but is unable to say.

|May the Fourth be With You|
In a galaxy far, far away at the Nesconset Branch of the Smithtown Library, a celebration of intergalactic proportions took place for May the Fourth, the officially unofficial Star Wars Holiday! Children in first through third grade played WAMPA, a game from the planet Hoth, similar to Bingo, created space slime, Wookie puppets and enjoyed refreshments such as Yoda Soda and Jedi Master Cakes (cupcakes that looked like Yoda!).
