Out of My Mind (Paperback)
"10 year old Melody has never spoken a word - even though she knows more words than most people. But cerebral palsy has trapped her words inside a body that doesn't work. But now, for the first time, Melody finds a way to let her words escape the fish bowl of her mind. The only obstacle now is that not everyone is ready to accept her for the brilliant relatively normal kid she really is."— Meghan G.

“This is the touching story of a gifted child,trapped in a barely working body. Melody, age 11, struggles to communicate with a world of children and adults most of whom can't see beyond her physical limitations. A provocative change of pace for Sharon Draper.”
