Out of My Mind by Sharon Draper
Mark Twain Nominee 2012/13
This was a very hard book to read. So very sad, and it hits you hard. Melody has cerebral palsy, and hasn't spoken a single word in her 11 years. But she is a genius with a photographic memory. Living inside her head, and trying to get those around her to understand that her brain isn't handicapped like her body, is driving her out of her mind.
