Review #1
* * * * * Stars (Amazing!)
This book talked about a girl named Melody. Her body is unable to move. She has a smart mind, however, she can’t speak her mind. I gave this book 5 stars because it was inspiring and the book talked about tons of important things.

Not everything is what it looks like! For example, when you see an eleven-year-old girl in a wheelchair with no ability to talk, the first thing that pops into your mind is mentally disabled. Wrong! Melody has a photographic memory and is smarter than the other kids in her school. She has to hold all her thoughts inside of her until one day Melody finds a way to communicate. I love this book because it raises a lot of what-ifs about disabled people. 

Review #3
* * * * * Stars (Amazing!)
Out of My Mind is an amazing book that anyone all ages would be sure to love. It’s about an 11-year-old girl named Melody who is disabled in so many ways. She can’t walk or talk which leads to other people thinking she’s dumb. Everyone’s wrong about her because it turns out she is the smartest kid in the whole school. She has a machine that can help her talk and that’s when everyone’s opinions about her are wrong.

* * * * * Stars (Amazing!)
A girl named Melody can’t walk, talk, or even feed herself. She hasn’t done those things ever in her life because of a syndrome. But growing up she can’t express herself and gets frustrated. Then she learns to communicate and do stuff like normal kids and gets put in a normal class for school! And in that class she makes friends and has great experiences!
