Did any charictors change through the course of this book? How did they change? What fources caused this change.
I think Melody changed because at first she thought she couldn't do anything. She thought she was retarted and had no way of showing that she was smart. When ms. Valencia told her she could do it I think it boosted her confedience. I think the force that caused her to beliew in herself was Melody in a uncomforble position and her really wanting to get comforble so she tried and tried and then she rolled over.
