This was a story of a boy that was born with a genetic defect that made him pretty hard to look at. He didn't start attending school with other children until his 5th grade year due to many medical procedures. As we all know middle school is a super tough time to even have a pimple so having a kind of condition that this August was born with I cannot imagine.
The story is told through many different view points from Auggie, to his sister to the friends around him. They were each effected in one way or another by Auggie. It was lovely to see this boy had such an amazing support group.
If you are looking for an underdog story that will warm your heart this book will do it. I just know Karen would have finished this book and texted me right away to add it to my list!
