This is an amazing book! The main character is a really smart eleven year-old named Melody. She can remember everything she's heard, and she learns fast. The only problem is that no one knows this about her because she can't talk, walk, or even write. Melody has cerebral palsy, and so she has to spend her whole day with the other disabled kids doing basically nothing. Then, something happens that helps her better communicate with the people around her. But most everyone isn't wiling to accept her for who she really is.
I loved how Out of My Mind was never predictable. The most surprising things happen near the end, and I really wish there was more. I think that anyone over the age of nine will enjoy this amazing book, and it will really help you to appreciate the things that you have. I rate this book five out of five stars.
