Booklist - 11/01/2021 Melody, whose story began in Out of My Mind (2010), is now a middle-grader. She lives with the effects of cerebral palsy, communicates via a Medi-Talker, and is at the stage in life when she’s driven to try new things. With summer on the horizon, she searches out and applies for admission to a camp designed to give kids with disabilities the sleepaway experience and the opportunity to participate in activities such as horseback riding, swimming, and zip-lining. Over her week away, her personal growth is evident through campfire confidences, unexpected adventures, and the joy of new friendships, plus a bit of first love. Draper authentically captures her determination, fears, and blossoming abilities with such sweet accuracy that readers will feel the anxieties and triumphs themselves. The pace of this coming-of-age story is more emotionally subdued than the first book’s, but it’s appropriate to the subject matter. Full of fun and the brightness of the future, Melody’s summertime adventure will delight readers old and new and leave them hoping for another installment. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: The best-selling Out of My Mind won countless hearts, which will eagerly seek out Melody's latest outing. - Copyright 2021 Booklist.
