Teen reviewer Georgia, 14, checked out Out Of My Mind by Sharon M. Draper after reading positive reviews of the story on Goodreads. She found this realistic story about a highly intelligent girl struggling with physical limitations that have her bound to a wheelchair, unable to speak.
"10-year-old Melody can't walk or talk or even feed herself, but Melody is sick of being written off as retarded. Truth is, Melody is really smart and she wants to prove it to the world. Now, with the help of a new medi-talker (a talking computer), the world is now open for her to explore."
Georgia suggests Out of My Mind for teens 12-15.
