Melody is not like most people. She cannot walk or talk, but she has a photographic memory; she can remember every detail of everything she has ever experienced. She is smarter than most of the adults who try to diagnose her and smarter than her classmates in her integrated classroom—the very same classmates who dismiss her as mentally challenged, because she cannot tell them otherwise. But Melody refuses to be defined by cerebral palsy. And she’s determined to let everyone know it…somehow. In this breakthrough story—reminiscent of The Diving Bell and the Butterfly—from multiple Coretta Scott King Award-winner Sharon Draper, readers will come to know a brilliant mind and a brave spirit who will change forever how they look at anyone with a disability.

I like Out of my Mind because it was sad but fun to read.If you like heart braking stores then you would like Out of my Mind.When I finished i liked it so much that my mom wanted to read it as well.When she started it she agreed it was sad but she liked it too.I think Out of my Mind is one of the best book I have ever read in my life!So I think Out of my Mind should win the M.C.B.A. Book award.
