Our Melody American Girl book “No Ordinary Sound” arrived today… She beat Lea’s books here which Amazon hasn’t shipped yet. Brianna and I started reading it in tandem. We won’t spoil the book for you, but one shareable detail is that Melody’s family calls her Dee-Dee!
If your library won’t stock the book for a while and you want to get in the mood of the early 60s, I can recommend the young adult book, “The Watsons Go to Birmingham, 1963” by Christopher Paul Curtis. He worked in an auto factory in Michigan prior to becoming a writer. Most of his books are award-winning.
Have any readers started Melody or Lea’s books yet? Maryellen’s?
