“Out of My Mind” by Sharon Draper- juvenile fiction


An outstanding book about Melody, a 10 year-old girl born with cerebral palsy. She is the smartest person in her grade, but no one knows it: she has never spoken a word. She can’t. Until the day she gets a “speaking” computer that allows her to communicate for the first time in her life- communicate with  WORDS. Unfortunately, kids can be mean and other students in her school are not nice to her and teachers keep treating her like a baby and don’t believe she is intelligent. She proves them wrong.  I am adding this to the summer reading list for 6th graders in my school.
