I throughly enjoyed going on magical journey with Melody. She shows that everyone is different and that’s okay. She wins over everyone with her charm and imagination. I have a sister with Downs Syndrome and she amazes everyone she meets. This year has been tough...and this little gem of a book brought a giant smile. ❤️

I won this book through the Goodreads Giveaways and am so happy to have been given the opportunity to read it. This was such a cute little story and Melody is the sweetest character. I usually pass on my Goodreads wins after I'm finished but since I'm a school counselor I'm going to keep this and add it to my library at the school.

Enchanting and fun! I received this book as a Birthday present. I have a dear niece with Down Syndrome and I can’t wait to share this with her.
Her name is Brooke and she loves to give hugs too!

With all that is going on in the world today, how refreshing to fantasize with Melody on her adventures. I recommend this for all ages.

I can’t believe someone would exploit an innocent and wonderful human being with this terrible piece of literature. Please remove this “book” from your website. So sad that a woman who claims she is an author and a family oriented woman would write something like this to hurt her family. I feel like I am an empathetic being, but cannot empathize with this woman at all! PLEASE remove! She doesn’t even have approval or consent to write about this.
