By R. J. Palacio

Auggie Pullman is a ten year old who was born with extreme facial abnormalities. He wasn’t expected to survive but he did. He has been home-schooled up until now where he enters fifth grade at a private middle school in Manhattan. Everyone stares, or pretends not to look but they do and all he wants is to be ordinary and fit in. He wants people to see him, see past his face to who he really is.
