I won’t describe what I look like. Whatever you’re thinking, it’s probably worse.

August (Auggie) Pullman was born with a facial deformity that prevented him from going to a mainstream school—until now. He’s about to start 5th grade at Beecher Prep, and if you’ve ever been the new kid then you know how hard that can be. The thing is Auggie’s just an ordinary kid, with an extraordinary face. But can he convince his new classmates that he’s just like them, despite appearances?

“What is beautiful is good, and who is good will soon be beautiful.”
 
THIS BOOK, ladies and gentlemen, IS AMAZING! I enjoyed it a lot and honestly I think this is one of the best books ever. Not because the story is awesome or the writing is superb (it is, don’t worry!) but because it makes you think about lots of different things.

I had no clue what to expect but that’s okay. It’s perfect. You just need to read it, don’t think about whether you’ll like this book or not – if you understand the point of it, I’m sure you’ll enjoy and love it as much as I did!

“Greatness lies not in being strong, but in the right using of strength … He is the greatest whose strength carries up the most hearts by the attraction of his own.”
 
Palacio did a VERY GOOD job with her characters – they seemed all so realistic and the changing POV’s were amazing. I loved to read everyone’s “opinion” about certain things or situations, about their thoughts or fears. August is a really inspiring character and so unbelievably brave and at the end I felt so, so, so happy for him and the rest! Seriously, the ending was perfect! I couldn’t picture a better one!

Now everyone go and buy the book and READ IT! :)
