Description of this Book

My name is August. I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse.' Auggie wants to be an ordinary ten-year-old. He does ordinary things and he feels ordinary inside. But ordinary kids don't make other kids run away screaming in playgrounds. Born with a terrible facial abnormality, Auggie has been home-schooled by his parents his whole life. Now he's being sent to a real school, and he's dreading it. All he wants is to be accepted. But can he convince his new classmates that he's just like them, underneath it all?
