This book is about an eleven year old girl who has cerebral palsy. Throughout the book she is narrating her life and time in school (even though she cannot speak) as she realizes she's just like the other kids in her school, regardless of her disabilities. This is a really heart warming and inspiring book that would be great to read in a book club the middle grades classroom. ( )

child with cerebral palsy fighting to communicate. ( )

This is a novel to tug at your heartstrings. Eleven year old Melody is imprisoned by the severity of her CP, unable to express herself to her family and the world. Her involuntary motions make her life even more difficult, particularly setting her apart from other kids. Draper reveals Melody's thoughts, and we see the pain that her inabilities cause her, and we also see the devotion of her parents and a few other adults. I found the situation somewhat unbelievable, however, because such concerned and loving parents would surely have located the adaptive equipment a lot sooner, that Melody finally demanded and her student intern helped her find. Another treatment of a similar situation is the Printz Honor book, Stuck in Neutral by Terry Trueman. ( )

Review of eBook

Ten-year-old Melody, a brilliant fifth-grade student, has never spoken a single word. The cerebral palsy that keeps her from walking, talking, and even feeding herself, affects only her body. She can read, think, reason, and understand . . . but she has no way to share those thoughts and feelings with others. She is sad that she has never been able to say, “I love you,” to her mother and father.

But Melody is determined to find a way to communicate, to overcome the condition that leaves her trapped in a body that simply won’t work.

And then a talking computer comes into her life.

Told from Melody’s point of view, the narrative pulls readers in from the outset. The characters are well-drawn and believable although the mean-spirited, rude classmates feel like a bit of a cliché. Still, it doesn’t detract from the heart of the story, from showing that disabilities don’t define a person. Here, in the pages of this compelling tale, readers find a protagonist with grit and determination, frustrated but accepting her condition, not seeking sympathy but hoping to find a way to fit in and belong.

At times, the story is overwhelming, but Melody’s thoughts and emotions ring true in the telling of the tale. The support Melody receives from her aide at school, her next-door neighbor, and her family is heartfelt and feels genuine, but readers will hope that the lack of accommodation for this young girl in the school setting, [which seems a bit odd], is not the norm for disabled students.

There aren’t many surprises in the unfolding narrative, but a despicable event near the end of the story works to provide an admonition for the targeted audience, readers ten and up, grades five through nine. However, all readers will find much to appreciate in this heartwarming tale of determination and love. Readers will find Melody’s inspiring story staying with them long after they’ve turned the final page.

Highly recommended.

I received a free copy of this eBook from Simon and Schuster Children’s Publishing, Atheneum Books for Young Readers and NetGalley

This book could be considered an eye opener to many. I think this would be a good book to read for teenage students because at that age everyone is different and sometimes kids can be cruel to children who aren't like them. I have a friend who has cerebral palsy so this book was very emotional but quite nice for me to read.

Out of My Mind was a book that put things in perspective for me. This novel is about a girl name Melody who is not able to speak or walk. Melody is a 12 year old girl who is was diagnosed with Cerbal Palsy, throughout this book it covers so many themes such as, courage, empathy, perseverance and so much more. We see the obstacles Melody is faced throughout the novel and how she is treated by those around her. Many people in the novel judge Melody by her disability instead of an actual person. The way this book put things in perspective for me personally was how we take for granted the things we are able to do and how there are cruel teachers and classmates out there. This novel was a prime example of how not all teachers are the best. I think this shows how amazing Melody is as a person and how she overcomes what is thrown at her. Melody is such a strong kind hearted girl who just wants to fit in like everyone else. It also shows the love and support of her family and close friends. They love Melody unconditionally regardless of her disability. I think this is a book that all people should read not just education majors. This novel reminds you of how people are different, but love them for them despite how different they may be. I would highly recommend this novel as it brought so many emotions to me as a person.
