We were told to write how this novel has gone in a 360 circle i think its because it means like a circle of life like she did it to prove that everyones life is in a circle and that just because melody wasn't "normal" her life was just like everyone . I think by making the story a 360 circle she was signifying that Melody's life is a circle like the circle of life.And that you cant add on to it cause her life is already perfect to me. I also thought it could be like her life time span and it turned into a circle because the author made the story end like the beggining .
The beginning of the chapter melody’s dad came into her room and her dad tolled melody the her team had come in ninth place melody acted like she didn’t care but she did. just then her mom came in and asked her if she wanted to stay home she said no. Her mom got her ready for school then penny walked in to the room wiping pennies nose the phone rang it was her boss asking her to come in she said yes. then melody’s mom started the proses of packing her in to the car. The rain and the wind had gotten worse in minutes their hoods had blown of and here hair was soaked. Then melody realized that she had forgotten her book bag then her dad gave it to them but hadn’t closed the door enough and then she saw penny dart out of the door . As they were pulling out of the drive there mom didn’t know what melody wanted then a BUMP they had ran over penny. Her dad ran out of the house then they heard the sirens . Her mom and dad left in the ambulance . Ms. came over and took Melody out of the car and took her to her house. Penny was still alive when they took her so Ms. stilled wanted to believe that she still was alive . Melody said it should have been me Ms. said don't talk stupid. Melody was so scared then the phone rang it was the hospital but she survived the surgery she’s going to live I almost cried I was so happy.
In the beggining of the chapter 28 started of with them packing for washington they entire chapter was about them packing for Washington. Chapter 29 they got to the airport and told the assistant that they are here to sign in for the afternoon flight to washington and she said that flight has been cancled my heart dropped in to a deep dark pit i was about to die it like when you go on the helevator and it drops really fast and your guts go up in your stomach that is what felt like and then Melodys mom asked them about everyone else on the quiz team she said ya i saw them the were here this morning they had lunch this morning together then took the early flight out Melodys dad got so mad he punched the wall i probably would have done that to well come back to read about the last couple chapters cause i need to go cry.
What I think what melody has learned about friendship and relationships with children working together as she practices and competes with the quiz team . Is the relation ships should be treasured and friends ships should be treasured but you should keep your friends close and your enemy’s closer. Even if she didn’t like someone on the team she kept going cause she it was what was best for the team. Melody learns about herself that she might not be able to fit in and no one will ever realize her true potential. But she will always have faith in her self and from that she is a much more confident women and that’s all that matters.
In the begging of the chapter Mr. dimming had been inspired to take the team out for dinner. Melody didn't think it was good idea because she might make a huge mess. Then everyone made her come cause she had been really good that night . When they got to the restaurant there was 5 stone stairs leading to the dinning room but there was an elevator but it had gone on the fritz that afternoon. The technician was coming the next morning but they got up the stairs easily. Melody ordered mac and cheese. When there food came Melodys food left untouched on the table. Her mom stabbed her dinner with a fork Melody was to embarrassed to eat it in front of her friends. So her mom asked her if Melody wanted to take it home she said yes . Just then the waiter brought the dessert menus. A while later Clair puked all over Mr. Dimmings shoes and everyone laughed I did to cause she deserved it. Then everyone payed there tabs and left but they all waited up for melody and then the chapter ended I was so sad when it ended but we now have to wait so come back on Monday.
