Out of My Mind
Written by Sharon Draper
How would you feel to be one of the smartest people in your grade but have no way to tell anyone? To be able to memorize everything you hear but not be able to proclaim the facts? That’s exactly how Melody feels. She has cerebral palsy, a condition that affects your body but not your mind. This story follows her as she tries to gain respect despite her difference.
This is a great book about overcoming tough conditions. Anyone who likes to read should definitely read this realistic fiction book. I recommend it for so many reasons, one of them being that it is a flat-out inspirational story. Sharon Draper does a perfect job of letting you feel like Melody does in this book. Five stars out of five for this book!
