Out of my Mind by Sharon Draper

An interesting story told from the perspective of a girl who, to all others in the world, is extremely disabled and does little more than have fits and drool. This is the tale of how she managed to show the world that she really does have a brain that is, as it turns out, amazing. She just needed the right people and the right tools to show the world. Very heartwarming and a bit idealistic, but interesting voice with power and caring. It makes you think.
