Out Of My Mind

Out Of My Mind Series ; Book 1

by Sharon M. Draper


Melody is not like most people. She cannot walk or talk, but she has a photographic memory; she can remember every detail of everything she has ever experienced. She is smarter than most of the adults who try to diagnose her, and smarter than her classmates in her integrated classroom—the very same classmates who dismiss her as mentally challenged because she cannot tell them otherwise. But Melody refuses to be defined by cerebral palsy. And she’s determined to let everyone know it…somehow. In this breakthrough story from multiple Coretta Scott King Award-winner Sharon Draper—reminiscent of The Diving Bell and the Butterfly—readers will come to meet a brilliant mind and a brave spirit, and remember that every voice is important.
