by R. J. Palacio
I loved this book!
Ten year old Augie is a paradox of innocence and wisdom. There are things he knows about human nature and why other kids behave the way they do, that are well beyond his years. His face is malformed and it shocks a lot of people. His parents and sister defend him from the world, but what he needs to do is get his feet wet in that big world out there.
The book is written beautifully. We listen to his thoughts and watch him meet the world with humor, integrity and insight, as he begins school for the first time in the 5th grade. We love this kid. This is a book about friendship, kindness and integrity. It's the best book I've read in a long time. A memorable book for kids and grown-ups alike.
