Out of My Mind is a moving book about a girl named Melody who can’t speak or move. She goes to a school, but is in a class for children with disabilities. Then, her class is allowed a chance to go to a real classroom, and with the help of a machine that talks for her, she proves to everyone that she is not stupid like everybody thinks, when in fact, she is one of the smartest people in her grade. She is chosen to be on the quiz team: a huge honor, but faces many challenges because of her disability. Fans of Wonder will love this book.
