Out of My Heart is the stunning sequel to Out of My Mind, the beloved, multi-million-copy-selling, multi-award-winning novel that’s held a place on the New York Times bestseller list for nearly four years!
Melody, the huge-hearted heroine of Out of My Mind, is now a year older and a year braver. But not as brave as she wants to be, as she’s terrified of horses. Even though she loves horses—loves loves loves them—from afar. Not one to be thwarted, Melody decides summer camp, one with horseback riding, should be her next challenge. Except, are there even riding camps for differently-abled kids? Ones that would welcome a kid with cerebral palsy? She’s going to find out.
