Overview

Eleven-year-old Melody has a photographic memory. Her head is like a video camera that is always recording, and she’s the smartest kid in her whole school—but no one knows it. If only she could speak up, if only she could tell people what she thinks and knows . . . but she can’t, because Melody can’t talk. She can’t walk. She can’t write. Melody has cerebral palsy, and most people—her teachers and doctors included—don’t think she’s capable of learning.Being stuck inside her head is making Melody go out of her mind—that is, until she discovers something that will allow her to speak for the first time ever. At last Melody has a voice . . . but not everyone around her is ready to hear it.From multiple Coretta Scott King Award winner Sharon M. Draper comes a story full of heartache and hope. Get ready to meet a girl whose voice you’ll never, ever forget.  * “Uplifting and upsetting…This moving novel will make activists of us all.” —Booklist (starred review)* “Unflinching and realistic…Rich in detail of both the essential normalcy and the difficulties of a young person with cerebral palsy.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)* “Kids will benefit from being introduced to Melody and her gutsy, candid, and compelling story. It speaks volumes and reveals the quiet strength and fortitude it takes to overcome disabilities and the misconceptions that go with them.”  —School Library Journal (starred review)“Will appeal not only to middle school readers but also to anyone who wonders what might be going on in the minds of individuals with severe physical handicaps.” —VOYA“If there’s only one book teens and parents (and everyone else) can read this year, Out of My Mind should be it.” —The Denver Post
