Summary: This story is about a boy named ¨Auggie.¨ Auggie is a boy that had many surgeries and was homeschooled. People made fun of his face and the way he looked. He thinks he's not ordinary, but his parents think he's special. One day, he was going to start school at Beecher Prep. Via (Auggie’s sister) cares about him more than anything, she doesn’t like when people look away from him or make comments about his face.
Reviewer’s Opinion: This book is a really great book, also is really sad at the same time, but this book is my favorite book out of all the books I have read.
