This story is about a boy called August. Auggie has never been to proper school before he has only been home schooled by his mother. This is because he is different to other boys. His face is different. As much as his family love him, his sister Via can’t get her mind off the fact that everything they do revolves around Auggie; for once she just wants someone to notice her. But good for her – she finally gets her big break…
Through the book you’ll hopefully understand Auggie more and get to know that he’s a great person and it doesn’t matter what you’re like on the outside as long as you’re good on the inside. It’s sad to say that Auggie gets severely bullied and is even told to kill himself. It’s a great book with a great message and I would definitely recommend that you read it.
