Out of My MindOut of My Mind by Sharon M. Draper

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Very well written. Amazing, even. Melody is a beautiful character.



Only, seriously. At one point the teacher posts a video to MySpace. I know it's silly that that bugged me when the rest of the book is so good. But come on. NO ONE DOES THAT ANYMORE. Especially a teacher posting a video of his students.


Opening lines ...

"Words. I'm surrounded by thousands of words.... Deep within me, words pile up in huge drifts.... But only in my head. I have never spoken one single word. I am almost eleven years old." (p 1-2)
