Auggie knows he's just an ordinary kid inside, but other people don't see that, at least not at first. Born with multiple genetic conditions resulting in a face that startles people at first glance and makes them stare or look away, Auggie has been homeschooled all his life. But fifth grade brings lots of changes: his parents decide that he should start going to a private school, which means a lot of adjustments on everyone's part.
The story is told from multiple viewpoints: Auggie's, his sister's, her boyfriend's, Auggie's friends..
Auggie has a great family and some terrific teachers: I love Mr. Browne's precepts.
