I couldn’t put this book down. It made me laugh and cry.The chapters are really short so you always have enough time to read one more chapter, before you put the light out! It makes you reflect on how you see those around you and think about life from other people’s point of view. Everyone must read this book!!!

I feel really sorry for the kid named August who has a deformed face. He had to go through a lot of stuff. Did you know that one of his thigh bones had to be put in his mouth because he didn’t have a jaw. Sad right. But its a really good book so whoevers reading this try and read the book.
