Publisher's Summary

From award-winning author Sharon Draper comes Out of My Mind, the story of a brilliant girl who cannot speak or write.
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, listeners will come to know a brilliant mind and a brave spirit who will change forever how they look at anyone with a disability.

I had spent hours on this and it really spoke to me how Melody had been so incredibly brave and had been so smart and it really was showing to all the kids out there who had a disability that they can be incredibly brave, and smart, and be whatever they want to do if they try. The Author was amazing and I felt like she did a great job on the characters emotions. Overall I think that this book was more than 5 ☆s

Amazing and heart wrenching

As the mother of a nonverbal child, I listened to this book recognizing the possibilities of what exist within my own child. So grateful to Melody for sharing her voice. I pray that this book has given me the additional motivation needed to explore every opportunity for Eli so that he can share his words with me and the world.
