The title of the novel is "Out Of My Mind" and this interprets Melody’s feeling`s about her life. I think this because for most of her life she had been stuck in her mind not aloud to move out and always haunted by her body and couldn’t explain anything.

I the title Out Of My Mind means that melody is going out of her mind. Because she couldnt talk inteel she was 11 and she cant talk by her self she needs a computer. And because she cant walk or even get up if she falls of her wheel chair. she didnt even use the eletric wheel chair to move by her self or use the comptuer to talk if theres a thunder storm and she cant control her arms or legs so she will kick and swing her arms and legs around.

I think that the author named the book out of my mind because Melody can feel like Ollie sometimes. Traped in her mind with nowhere to go

I think the title means Melody. Melody just goes out of her mind sometimes and if I couldnt talk for even one day let alone my whole life, i would go out of my mind too.

Since the title is Out Of My Mind, at first I thought that Melody was going to do something that makes her out of her mind, because on the front cover it shows a gold fish jumping out of it's tank, like the goldfish is out of it's mind. Then after our class read a lot of the book I realised the title actually means that Melody has been trapped in her mind for so long not able to move or talk and she wants to go out of her mind. The title could also mean that since Melody is not able to do anything she is going out of her mind.

I think Out Of My Mind means she can't explain what she is trying to tell people. Also she can't walk witch would be anoying to me and I can walk. So that must be really hard

I think the book is called Out Of My Mind becuase Melody is stuck in her mind. She also can't accomplish simple tasks like going to the bathroom and feeding herself. I think she is trying to say that her disability and her life is driving Melody insane.

Out of my mind means like Melody is going Out of her mind because she usually can't explain stuff to her parents.

i think since she can't talk it makes melody so mad and she can't move and shes in a wheel chair

The title of this book means that Melody is out of her mind because she can't really talk, walk, or express her feelings. She couldn't really say anything until she was 11! When Penny was hit by the car, Melody was trying to warn her family, but her mom got mad at her for being so loud! She is also out of her mind because nobody can exept her for who she is!
