“Auggie looks different, in fact he's deformed, but he has a heart of gold. This coming of age story is told from multiple perspectives and follows his through a year of middle school. Read to discover his highs and lows, and what it is like to be his sibling or friend. Don't read this book unless you have a box of tissues. This heartwarming story will change your life just as Auggie changes the lives of those around them. ”David B wrote this review yesterday. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
