As I play the final note, I feel a breeze. The sheet music flutters and the room darkens, as if someone pulled a curtain. I rub my eyes. The sheet music is still in front of me, but everything else has changed. Is this my craziest daydream ever, or did I just play my way back in time? What if you suddenly found yourself in Melody's world of the 1960s? Together, you and Melody could speak up about fairness, join a demonstration, volunteer with a civil rights group, or even use your voice to sing backup for a Motown musician! As you read, you get to decide what happens next by choosing your own path through this multiple-ending story.

Denise Lewis Patric grew up in Louisiana, and is thrilled to write about its history in the stories of this new American Girl historical character. Denise wrote and illustrated her first book when she was ten—she glued yellow cloth to cardboard for the cover and sewed the pages together on her mom's sewing machine! Today, Denise has published more than 35 picture books, biographies, and historical novels for young readers.
