OUT OF MY MIND Melody, diagnosed with cerebral palsy, cannot walk or talk. Despite her parents' best efforts, the outside world has defined her by her condition. Melody's life changes when inclusion classrooms are introduced in her school, and she interacts with children other than those in her special-needs unit. To these children, Melody is "other," and they are mostly uncomfortable with her sounds and jerky
Out of My Mind Melody is a smart, funny and talented fifth grader. She loves to listen to music, spend time with her family, and learn new things at school. But nobody --- or at least very few people --- knows just how smart and funny she is. That’s because she has cerebral palsy, a condition that leaves her unable to move or speak. She needs help eating and using the toilet, and she can’t bathe or dress herself
Wasn't what I hoped Honestly, I wish there was more to the ending. Melody's friends turn on her, they don't win, the ending was all basically depressing. Especially because she ended the book say she had never said a word her whole life.
this is legit my favorite book I've EVER read. It was an incredible story , and I liked it a lot. I read it twice, and i'll probably read it again soon . I would recommend this to mostly teens and adults, just because it was pretty emotional, but it would still be great for kids, because it's totally appropriate. I literally recommended this to all my friends, and even my grandma. I liked it because it wasn't unbearably long, and I finished it in about three days. if you're an adult, and don't really have that much time to read, this is great for you, because it isn't a drag.
Love I feel so encouraged by reading this I read it sooooo many times and I NEVER get bird of it I love it
Love it😘😘 Really good book
