I am finally getting around to posting about the last 3rd of this book. I took it with me last weekend when the older boys and I were selected to be extras on a local tv show (I can’t tell you too many details - but it’s funny and was so fun!)
But really guys…the last third is where it is at! I could not put this book down.
How do you think you would have coped with the airport situation? Differently? The same? I really loved how Melody handled it. I think it showed so much maturity. I was so proud of her for wanting to go to go school the next day.
The scene when Melody was trying to stop her mom – when she wanted to go to school. OH. MY. GOSH. I am not even sure where to start with this. I was having so much anxiety reading it. I felt SO bad for Melody. She was trying so hard to communicate with her mom. I wanted to cry.
In the back of the book there are discussion questions – I really love the one about how Melody handles the quiz team. Do you think it was satisfying? What could she have done differently? I totally LOVED that part of the book. I wanted to stand up and cheer for her.
How did this book affect you? What were your thoughts?
I really want to read this book to my kids. I know there are teachers at our elementary school that have read it out loud to their class room. I think EVERYONE could glean something from this book.
Leave a comment. Let me know your thoughts. If you haven’t finished this book – just wait. Wait until you get to this last section and I promise you will not be able to put it down! I can’t wait – next week I’ll post a couple books for our December book club selection. I can’t wait to show you some of the ideas and hear what book you want to read together. And don’t forget, follow me on Facebook and Instagram for more updates!
