Out of My Mind by Sharon M. DraperMelody is a typical fifth grader in some ways; she struggles to fit in, worries about tests and who she will sit with at lunch, and, at times, is frustrated by her parents and teachers. Melody is also unique in that she has cerebral palsy, a condition that limits her ability to control her body and communicate, but does not effect her mind. This powerful, coming-of-age story is an ideal first-person narrative to anchor this Book Club that explores the development of theme throughout the novel.
