About This Book:
Melody, the huge-hearted heroine of Out of My Mind, is a year older, and a year braver. And now with her Medi-talker, she feels nothing’s out of her reach, not even summer camp. There have to be camps for differently-abled kids like her, and she’s going to sleuth one out. A place where she can trek through a forest, fly on a zip line, and even ride on a horse! A place where maybe she really can finally make a real friend, make her own decisions, and even do things on her own—the dream!
By the light of flickering campfires and the power of thunderstorms, through the terror of unexpected creatures in cabins and the first sparkle of a crush, Melody’s about to discover how brave and strong she really is.

Out of My Mind is a perennial favorite, mainly because so many elementary teachers use it as a read aloud. I imagine that many readers do want to know what happened to Melody and will be glad to read about her week at summer camp. There are some books that are worth waiting for a sequel, like Week’s So Be It and Soof, Holt’s Zachary Beaver Came to Town and The Ambassador of Nowhere, Texas, and Levine’sThe Two Princesses of Bamarre and The Lost Kingdom of Bamarre.
Readers who love summer camp stories like Rhuday-Perkovich’s It Doesn’t Take a Genius, Malone’s Camp Shady Crook series, Sloan and Wolitzer’s To Night Owl from Dogfish and Tan’s Summer at Meadow Wood will find Melody’s experience at camp an interesting and inclusive look at what summer camp is like for someone who faces challenges they might not be familiar with.
