really liked it

Out of my Mind is a book about a girl with CP who faces many daily struggles. It allows the reader to walk with Melody, the 11 year-old main character, through the highs and lows of her life. This book would definitely be a springboard for many worthwhile discussions about friendship, disabilities and how we relate to others in our life. As a former teacher, who has worked with kids with CP, I really enjoyed reading the book from Melody's point of view. My 11 year-old son, not an avid reader, struggled with the length of the book, although it did provide lots of opportunites for dialog with him about the topics presented in the book. I would definitely recommend it for middle school and above.
