Could loving society mean something different than just hearts and rose colored glasses? What?
by R.J. Palacio
August (Auggie) Pullman was born with a facial deformity that has prevented him from attending a mainstream school—until now. He’s about to enter fifth grade at Beecher Prep, and if you’ve ever been the new kid, then you know how hard that can be. The thing is Auggie’s just an ordinary kid, with an extraordinary face. But can he convince his new classmates that he’s just like them, despite appearance? Using compelling character and story development, this book explores bullying, bias, difference, friendship and empathy.
