SummaryAdd a Summary
Out Of My Mind is a book about an eleven year old disabled girl named Melody. Melody is unique, she has something called a photographic memory. So everything that she hears or sees is stuck in her brain without a delete button. Melody is also stuck in a wheel chair, cant talk, and must be fed by someone else. Out of my mind is about Melody getting her chance to speak using her machine, and how her life is and how to adapt.
Out of My Mind is about a girl named Melody who has a disability called Cerebral Palsy. This story is about how she overcomes the every day challenged of middle school.
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.
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.
