This book is on my daughter's summer reading list. We got it on kindle and I read it in a few hours. It is heart wrenching sad, and heart warming good. It made me cry and have hope that children with differences all over the world have happy endings like Auggie Pullman.
This is a book written for the middle school age group. It is a fast read and a really great story about a kid with severe facial deformation.
Talking to my kids about acceptance of all people for all things is something I've made a priority. This book really made me hope that if my kids were the ones that had an Auggie in their classes they would be the ones with the courage to be his friend.
