Wow, this book is really good! I definitely recommend it. It really made me look at everything a different way. Definitely worth the read!

This is one of the best books i ever read! (And trust me, i read A LOT!) Some parts make me cry feeling sorry for Melody, the main character, and thinking of how lucky we are to have no sickness that has changed your life. You will see the point of view of a struggling girl that is VERY intelligent but is judged from her sickness that she will not know a single thing. In this book, you will see a misjudged girl, Finally be realized of her intelligence. -A.P

This was an amazing book! I loved how it taught me to not just look at the outer layer of a person, but to look at the heart. It really warmed my heart! I would really recommend it!

This book renewed my gratitude for being as healthy and able bodied as I am. It also showed me the opposite side of that world and gave me a greater compassion for those less able. A great and moving read!

the book is about a girl who cant talk and cant walk . it is all about what happens it is a very good book

Being unable to speak, unable to walk, to hug her parents, to tell anybody: I love you. It's hard. Especially when people think you're retarded and your fish commits suicide. Melody has handled it all; but now she has a chance to speak- to be the person she truly is, in a way that will stay with you forever. Read it, love it, and cry: this is an amazing book.

This book is about a girl with a disability that does not let her move her body on her own will and how she over comes that and earns a voice.

this book contain so many good stuffs.in the book Out of My Mind, Sharon M. Draper writes about an incredibly bright eleven year old girl named Melody who has cerebral palsy. Melody wants so much to be able to communicate with others but is trapped inside by a disability that leaves her a prisoner without a voice. She desperately wants to talk; to show the world that she is actually gifted verbally, with a photogenic memory for words that surpasses that of all her peers. But she cannot, beyond grunting and spastic movements. With the help school assistant, Melody gets a machine that talks for her. With it, she is no longer trapped; she is no longer out of her mind! This machine enables Melanie to do more things and reach new heights. It also brings on more problems. I would highly recommend this book.
