Out of My Mind by Sharon M. Draper.

Eleven-year-old Melody has a photographic memory. her head is like a video camera that is always recording. Always. And there´s no delete button. She´s the smartest kid in her whole school-but NO One knows it. Most people-her teachers and doctors included-don´t think she´s capable of learning, and up until recently her school days consisted of listening to the same preschool-level alphabet lessons again and again and again. If only she could speak up, if only she could tell people what she thinks and knows… but she can´t, because Melody can´t talk. She can´t walk. She can’t write.

Being stuck inside her head is making Melody go out of her mind-that is, until she discovers something that will allow her to speak for the first time ever. At last Melody has a voice… but not everyone around her is ready to hear it.
