Out of My Mind

“Out of My Mind” has been selected for the 2024 Sundance Film Festival!

New York Times bestseller for three years and counting, Out of My Mind will be premiering on Disney+ in 2024.

From award-winning author Sharon Draper comes a story that will forever change how we all look at anyone with a disability.

Eleven-year-old Melody Brooks is not like most people. She can’t walk. She can’t talk. She can’t write. All because she has cerebral palsy. But she also has a photographic memory; she can remember every detail of everything she has ever experienced. She’s the smartest kid in her whole school, but NO ONE knows it.

Most people—her teachers, her doctors, her classmates—dismiss her as mentally challenged because she can’t tell them otherwise.

But Melody refuses to be defined by her disability. And she’s determined to let everyone know it…somehow.

This powerful story is about finding one’s voice, with the help and support of those who are willing to really listen.
