“My name is August, by the way. I won’t describe what I look like. Whatever you’re thinking, it’s probably worse.” Auggie Pullman has been home schooled his whole life, but now he is starting the fifth grade at Beecher Prep. He’s an ordinary ten year old boy, but his face is anything but ordinary.
Told from Auggie’s first person point of view, and also from the perspectives of those he has touched and changed this story is at times heartbreaking, at times hilarious, it will make you angry and it will make you giddy with joy. While Auggie’s facial deformities make it hard for people to accept him, his big heart makes it impossible for people (and readers) to remain untouched by him.
