This book is about a boy named August who is going into middle school. When August was born his face came out very different than most other people, so naturally he is nervous of being made fun of in middle school. August has been home schooled up until this point, so he barely knows anyone in his class. The book shows persistence and good friendships, and is an amazing and unique story.
I loved how realistic the author was about middle school students in the book. I also loved how the author switches point of view a lot to help you understand all sides of the story.
Note from Super Kitty & Piranha T: We also loved this book - it is one of our favorites and, if you haven't read it already, we highly recommend reading it with friends - it makes for excellent discussion!
