Out Of My Mind by Sharon M. Draper
In the Book there is a girl named Melody and she has such a strong photogenic memory. As she has such a good memory she is also the smartest kid in her whole school. As this leaves her with only positiveness about herself, there however is one down fall to herself as she can not talk, walk or even write. One day she literally goes out of her mind and wants to be able to talk so bad and sure enough she discovers something that allows her to do so.
I really like this book as it shows a young girl conquering things that she never thought she could. The book really brings light to people who may have some sort of a disability. I highly believe that this book is at a reading level for 8th graders.
