Out of My Mind by Sharon Draper
Melody is 11 and billiant but she has not been able to say a word her entire life. Melody has cerebral palsy which prevents her from talking to others. Luckily for her, her family and neighbor never gave up on her and recognized her intelligence. Unfortunately, the students in her school are not as understanding. But now, with the help of her new computer that allows her to talk, Melody is finally able to show everyone how smart she is. With lots of help studying from her family Melody is working to join the school's academic quiz bowl team against all odds.
