Meet Melody: No Ordinary Sound

Episode 118,   Jul 10, 2023, 04:00 AM

In this episode, we dive into Melody Ellison’s world. While growing up in a busy home in 1960s Detroit, Melody is getting singing lessons and an education in civil rights activism. In her first Beforever book, Melody must gather up the courage to sing a solo in the wake of a national tragedy. Meet this aptly named American Girl and learn about the side characters whose voices sing in concert to make “no ordinary sound.”
