really liked it
bookshelves: childrens-books, realistic-fiction

I read this book in about day, so as you might guess, it was pretty good. It made me want to take Auggie under my wing and protect him from all the bad stuff and people in the world.

I loved Auggie, and all his friends and family. I especially liked how, over time, the kids at the school came to protect him and claim him as part of them. It was interesting seeing him from different points of view, even if some of them could have been done without. (Especially Justin's. No punctuation or capital letters? I have a hard enough time reading without trying to wade through that.)

At it's heart, this book is really about the goodness that is out in the world. In the end, people that are good and kind will always win over the people who are cruel and mean. This was just a beautiful story. I can't wait to see the movie and hope they don't ruin it.
