Out of My Mind
by Sharon M. Draper
Hey y’all! Today, I’m going to do something that I’ve never done on my blog before…a book review of the amazing book, Out of My Mind by Sharon M. Draper!
So, if you’re wondering what this book is about, it centers around a 10-year-old girl named Melody, who has cerebral palsy. In 5th grade, her class of special needs students move into school with kids without special needs. Melody struggles to communicate with and be accepted among her peers, and she gets into some conflict when she gets included into her class’ team for the spelling bee.
This story was really inspirational. The most intriguing part was probably the fact that it was from Melody’s point of view. Despite the fact that she cannot verbally talk, she is such an intelligent character, and, for a large amount of the story, people underestimated how smart she really was.
It’s extremely family-oriented, and it includes many unexpected plot twists that can really mess with your emotions. I loved every second of reading this. I would go so far to say that this is one of the best novels that I’ve read so far, and trust me, I read a lot!
So, overall, I really hope you enjoyed this book review! If you are interested in buying this book for yourself, you may do so at a lot of common online stores, or on Apple Books, which is where I purchased it.
As well, the wonderful author, Sharon M. Draper, just published the sequel to this book, Out of my Heart, which I haven’t had the opportunity to read, yet. If you have read it, please tell me what you think about the book overall. Just no spoilers, please! :>
Have a fantastic day everyone! ✨
