“If there is one book teens and parents (and everyone else) should read this year, Out of My Mind should be it” (Denver Post).Melody is not like most people. She cannot walk or talk, but she has a photographic memory; she can remember every detail of everything she has ever experienced. She is smarter than most of the adults who try to diagnose her and smarter than her classmates in her integrated classroom—the very same classmates who dismiss her as mentally challenged, because she cannot tell them otherwise. But Melody refuses to be defined by cerebral palsy. And she’s determined to let everyone know it…somehow. In this breakthrough story—reminiscent of The Diving Bell and the Butterfly—from multiple Coretta Scott King Award-winner Sharon Draper, readers will come to know a brilliant mind and a brave spirit who will change forever how they look at anyone with a disability.

4.0 Out of My Mind
Though this book does read a bit young (about 3rd grade) it delivers its message and connects with the reader. There are some parts of the book that do feel dated (references to MySpace etc.), which might put off a few kids who want to read more cutting edge stuff, but these are relatively minor. Th...

5.0 Mit Worten kann ich fliegen
Das Cover ist schlicht, aber in meinen Augen wunderschön. Und dahinter verbirgt sich ein wunderschönes, poetisches, ergreifendes Jugendbuch, dass man auch als Erwachsener mit Gewinn lesen kann - und vielleicht sogar sollte.Melody ist eine wunderbare Heldin, die sich direkt in den ersten Zeilen in me...
