Review: Out of my mind by Sharon Draper

Melody is a highly intelligent 5th grader and fellow human but she has a disease – called cerebral palsy – that doesn’t allow her to talk, stand or move. She sits in a wheel chair and communicates with the help of a special devise. Melody is super smart but as she can’t express herself that well others often think she is not bright at all. If she gets something right at school, they say she is just lucky. That is why Melody signs up for a TV quiz show. Their team won the first round but when they had to fly to Washington for the finals, they left Melody behind at the airport. Only when her team lost without her, they realized how important and knowledgeable Melody was. And they felt awful for leaving her stranded at home. Do you think, Melody can forgive her classmates? Read and find out!
