Every witch student: Welcome to the Academy

As she was reaching her twelfth birthday Melanie was found and placed in another foster home. She was soon reunited with the family who had been in the processes of adopting her before she went missing. She had several visitations with them and celebrated her 12th birthday with them. It wasn't long before it was learned she was very creative and loved inventing machines that had a reputation of being disastrous. She finally adopted and went home at the end of chapter ten.

You set me up for boot-camp with grandma, you so don't get to hug me.” Melanie- Maddie

Personality

Melanie frequently acted out and the reason for her behavior wasn't really discovered. It could have been caused by jealousy towards her pregnant sister over the amount of attention Emily was getting. Melanie also seemed to be feeling left out and forgotten by her family members- her parents specifically. She went on to presume a sexual relationship with the foster kid of her adoptive aunt. She even continued the relationship after he was adopted and became her cousin. Melanie went back and forth from treating her sister like crap to protecting and standing up for her.

Throughout the book

In the fifth chapter, Melanie surprised everyone when she stood up for Emily in class. In the seventh chapter, Melanie was punished for acting like a toddler by being treated like one. She was given a plastic toddler fork to eat the meat that her mother had cut up into little pieces for her.

In the tenth chapter, Melanie had a birthday supper with her secret boyfriend Robert and best friend Tommy after her entire family had forgotten her birthday. Melanie told them that she had also cast a spell on her family to make them believe they had celebrated her birthday because she didn't want to celebrate with them knowing they had forgotten. In the twelfth chapter, Melanie was sent to live with her paternal grandfather during her entire spring break to be straightened out by her grandmother. He behavior did seem to improve.

In the thirteenth chapter, Melanie was expelled from school for punching a girl and breaking her nose. She had committed the crime to defend her younger sister Emily. Melanie was back in school the following chapter and didn't receive any further punishments. It wasn't explained how Melanie had been un-expelled but we can assume Ava carried out the plan she had shared with Melanie's parents.
