Out of My Mind
New York, NY: Atheneum (2010).
First Edition. Signed. $16.99
Eleven-year-old Melody has a photographic memory. Her head is like a
video camera that is always recording. Always. And there's no delete
button. She's the smartest kid in her whole school-but no one knows it.
Most people-her teachers and doctors included-don't think she's capable
of learning, and up until recently her school days consisted of
listening to the same preschool-level alphabet lessons again and again
and again. If only she could speak up, if only she could tell people
what she thinks and knows . . . but she can't, because Melody can't
talk. She can't walk. She can't write.
Being stuck inside her head is making Melody go out of her mind-that is, until she discovers something that will allow her to speak for the first time ever. At last Melody has a voice . . . but not everyone around her is ready to hear it.From multiple Coretta Scott King Award winner Sharon M. Draper comes a story full of heartache and hope. Get ready to meet a girl whose voice you'll never, ever forget.
