Review: "Out of My Mind" by Sharon M. Draper
As a writer of women's fiction, I don't often read middle grade fiction, but this book has changed my life. Or I hope it has. My family's experience with type 1 diabetes has taught me about being physically different than other people. There are few limitations but many misconceptions about living with the disease, and I felt I could empathize, if only slightly. Melody's story opened my eyes, my heart, and gotten me thinking. I will be forever grateful I read this book.
And in case you'd like to check it out, here's a link to the author's blog and official website. And here's a link to my son's review...the one who said I had to read it.
Have you read this book? Let me know what you thought.
