Out Of My Mind was read to me at school by my teacher Mrs. Terlecky. I loved it so much and it's one of her favorite's also. I'm so glad that she read this out aloud because it sends a very deep message, that every one the same and every one should be treaded nicely. This book has so many messages but it says those messages by the messages not happening.
Melody is a girl that has cerebral palsy(that a link to learn more about cerebral palsy). Cerebral palsy makes you non-progressive. But it does not always make you stupid. Everybody thinks Melody is very stupid because of what she looks like, but she is not at all stupid. She is very smart. Many people support her and many don't. She almost has a third parent a friendly nieborgh Mrs. V. Mrs. V takes her to the next level by making her crawl and making her pick up cards the she drops, that very hard for Melody.
For Melody to speak she use a board with words Mrs. V and her choose the words. She never has talked before and she will not ever be able too. Melody's board has just normal words like : Good 1,2,3,4,5,etc. Love you etc. Then something so big happens and you just want to scream.
This is one of my favorite books all time, no doubt.
Here's Mrs. Terlecky's blog link. Check her blog out she share it with a man named Bill.
