Out of My Mind Sharon M. Draper read online review & book description:

A New York Times bestseller for three years and counting!

“A gutsy, candid, and compelling story. It speaks volumes.” —School Library Journal (starred review)
“Unflinching and realistic.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

From award-winning author Sharon Draper comes a story that will forever change how we all look at anyone with a disability, perfect for fans of RJ Palacio’s Wonder.

Eleven-year-old Melody is not like most people. She can’t walk. She can’t talk. She can’t write. All because she has cerebral palsy. But she also has a photographic memory; she can remember every detail of everything she has ever experienced. She’s the smartest kid in her whole school, but NO ONE knows it. Most people—her teachers, her doctors, her classmates—dismiss her as mentally challenged because she can’t tell them otherwise. But Melody refuses to be defined by her disability. And she’s determined to let everyone know it…somehow.

    I was seeing everything she was going through it felt different. Every book i’ve read they where able to walk and talk but then every time she was put I just want to help her and say what on her mind.
  • I LOVED IT!!! 🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳

    By Emmie 77
    This book was so good!!!! I want a movie version of it too! The main character Melody is awesome: don’t let that jerk Claire get you down; you’re smart and great and she’s just mean, Mel! I loved that there’s finally a book about the struggles of not being able to talk. I have never read a book like that before; they hardly make any books about characters who cannot speak. 😑😑 It was really good, but thee were some sad parts (like the sad story of Ollie the goldfish), so I recommend for ages 9 or 10+. Great book!!!!!!!!!!!! 😍🥰😋😚😃😄😁😆😀☺️😊😌🥳👍🤩😃🥰💋👍👍👍👏👏😻😺

    I love this book because it teaches you about people with disabilities. I love Melody because she’s brave, kind and inspiring. I wish there’s a movie about this book because you can go more in depth in the characters life. If there was a movie, I would love to portrayed the character Melody because she’s inspiring and interesting. I am a blind person and sometimes things can be challenging like doing math, but I get through those challenges. I know how Melody feels because not being able to speak and say what comes to your mind is difficult and challenging, just like doing math with your eyes closed is challenging as well. I would recommend this book to anyone because you can gain more knowledge of disabilities. Would give this book 5 stars. You can also check out my technology podcast Blind Techie Geek Speaks. It is a Technology Podcast for the blind or anyone else that might be interested in technology.

    Melody is so cute even if she has CP I read in school. We said the lesson was don’t mistreat people with disabilities.

    I love this book! Such a cute story. And it is a book with a lesson, “don’t judge a book by its cover.”

  • One Of The Best Books Ever!!!

    By Sand Sared
    This book helped me understand more about someone’s situation. It was a bit depressing, but the story has a beautiful plot. I love it sooooo much, that I could read it a million times without getting sick of it! 😁
