Book Club - Out of My Mindl

The next book our club is reading is called "Out of My Mind". When they mentioned it at out last meeting it sounded really interesting. It's not like anything I have read before so I was excited!!! I am almost half way through it and am really enjoying it so far!!! I will let you know what I think of the whole thing once I am done with it! We meet in a few I better get on it!!!


Eleven-year-old Melody has a photographic memory. Her head is like a video camera that is always recording. Always. And there's no delete button. She's the smartest kid in her whole school—but no one knows it. Most people—her teachers and doctors included—don't think she's capable of learning, and up until recently her school days consisted of listening to the same preschool-level alphabet lessons again and again and again. If only she could speak up, if only she could tell people what she thinks and knows . . . but she can't, because Melody can't talk. She can't walk. She can't write.

Being stuck inside her head is making Melody go out of her mind—that is, until she discovers something that will allow her to speak for the first time ever. At last Melody has a voice . . . but not everyone around her is ready to hear it.
