Have the tissues nearby as you read this heartwarming tale about August “Auggie” Pullman, a ten year old boy heading to school for the first time, after being unable to previously attend due to his twenty seven plus surgeries medically necessary to correct the genetic condition he was born with that basically renders him without a face. Well, ok, he does sort of have a face, but it’s one that frightens people the minute they set their eyes upon it. As Auggie describes it – he has - partial cauliflower ears halfway down his face that look like a newborn’s clenched fist sticking out the side of his head, sunken cheeks atop melted wrinkled skin, and eyes that are mismatched and slanted in a drooping, yet bulging way. Auggie is used to the stares and whispers of strangers on the street but now that he’s enrolled in school like all the other “normal” ten year olds, can he actually just be a normal kid and just be Auggie? Because to him, that’s all he is, a ten year old boy aching to fit in and make some friends, but will the other students at Beecher Prep be able to look past his face and see him for whom he really is? This story takes you from September to June of Auggie’s fifth grade year and you will laugh and cry alike. A great read for anyone looking for a wonderful story. Reviewed by DH
Auggie Pullman has never had to go to school with other kids. Lucky him you say? Not so much. You see, Auggie’s a great kid. Loves his Star Wars and his Xbox and all the other stuff kids are into. He also has had more surgeries than most people go through in an entire lifetime, and he’s only in the fifth grade. Born with severe birth defects that have rendered his face very different from that of other kids he’s been homeschooled for years. Now, at long last, he has a chance to go to a small school near his home for the first time. He’s always had to deal with people treating him differently. The real question is whether or not he can get them to look beyond his face to see how he’s just the most ordinary kid you ever did know.
