Hello everyone! I just finished rereading Out of my Mind and it is one of my favorite books. I recommend it for ages 9-12. Enjoy!
Out of my Mind by Sharon M. Draper
Out of my Mind is about 10 year old Melody who was diagnosed with cerebral palsy* when she was born.
*Cerebral palsy (CP) is a group of disorders that affect a person’s ability to move and maintain balance and posture. CP is the most common motor disability in childhood. Cerebral means having to do with the brain. Palsy means weakness or problems with using the muscles.
My 3rd Grade teacher read this to my class and we loved it! This is a great book filled with laughter, sadness, and makes you relate and feel sympathy for young Melody.
