Out of My Mind

out of my mindOut of My Mind by Sharon Draper


This awesome book is about a handicapped girl, Melody Brooks, who is incredibly smart. Unfortunately, she can only move her thumb. She finally sees something that will change her life and the way others think of her. When she gets to be on the school’s team of the smartest students, and the get to be going to the nationals, what will happen? Read the book to find the magical thing that changed her life, and what happens next.

My favorite part was when she got the highest grade on a practice test, with a perfect A+, and totally beat the others and proved her smartness.

If you like realistic fiction, or even books that make you emotional, you’ll like this book!

This book’s genre is realistic fiction. This book’s story line is sad and heart-warming. This book left me feeling┬áhopeful, inspired, motivated, shocked, surprised, touched. On a scale of 1-5, I give this book a 5!
