R. J. Palacio,

Auggie wants to be an ordinary ten-year-old. Born with a terrible facial abnormality, Auggie has been home-schooled by his parents his whole life. Now, for the first time, 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? You can’t blend in when you were born to stand out.

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!!!
