I like a lot of things about Sharon Draper’s writing. She makes me feel sensitive about Melody how the dad sniffles about Melody falling. She makes every sentence pop and that’s why I like this book so much. I can relate to some of the character’s in the book like the mom I would not let anyone be mean to my family not even me. It’s so realistic and lifelike,the reason I said it was lifelike was because it has humor and joy with sadness and anger that’s what makes it realistic.
