Interpreting the author's symbolism

I have loved reading all your posts! Your thoughts about Out of My Mind have been solid, and I hope you are continuing to enjoy the book. Your assignment for this week includes two parts.

1. How is Melody like Ollie?
(If you don't know who Ollie is, read Chapter 8.)

2. We all know what happened to Ollie. Do you think this is the author's way of foreshadowing? Why or why not?

Out of My Mind

Starting next week, we are going to read Sharon Draper's Out of My Mind. Each week during your library class period, we will read portions of this book together and complete activities to help us better understand this exceptional work of literature.

Your blog post for this week is an easy assignment. In just one sentence, tell me what you think this book might be about. No googling! All I want is your guess, based on the title of the book. If you have already read Out of My Mind, just post a sentence saying that.
