I heard about the book from my son before the movie came out. So, I picked it up for him to read over the holidays, started it on a whim, then finished it in a day. The story is told through the voices of many characters, and each one is honest and unique. It captured my heart and I couldn't put it down. If you're looking for something uplifting that will spark empathy and kindness, this will fit the bill. Now I'm off to draft my own monthly Precept!
Born with a facial deformity that initially prevented his attendance at public school, Auggie Pullman enters the fifth grade at Beecher Prep and struggles with the dynamics of being both new and different, in a sparsely written tale about acceptance and self-esteem.
