Considered by many to be mentally retarded, a brilliant, impatient fifth-grader with cerebral palsy discovers a technological device that will allow her to speak for the first time.
This was a great book. It is a very sad story but once you get to the end you know that it was all worth it. All of the crying and wishing that the sadness would end. It is all ok in the end. I think.
A really good book that helps people understand how it would feel to have a disability.
GREAT book. VERY moving. VERY inspirational novel about a girl who is a genius but cant speak and move very well
Out Of My Mind is definitely one of the
best books I have ever read because of its
The tale of a girl who learned to speak her mind. Literally!!! This was very touching. It was like those teen dramas where nobody can fit in and only the perfect ones are the cool ones! I really loved this book because it really showed that no matter who you are and what problems you have you will always shine!
This is an amazing, inspirational novel. Melodys thoughts really give you a great perspective on how people with disabilities feel.
This has a fantastic story, but I love it for the lovely message about resilience. Parents will appreciate the message that life isn't always fair, but you can't let that be an excuse. The beautiful aspect of this book is that kids will appreciate it too. The ending is realistic not Disney, but this allows the character to overcome it. Perfect for my going-into-fifth grade daughter, but good enough that I also enjoyed it.
THIS BOOK IS AMAZING. I gave up on reading. Then I read this book. Then I began reading again. There you have it. This book made me think differently about children with disabilities. I love it.
Draper walks you through what it would be like to have Melody's condition: how some people would treat you with kindness while others treat you with cruelty (or ignore you completely). This also did a good job of sucking you into the elementary school microcosm. It was like looking at the world through the eyes of a fifth grader.
