Book Review by Margot
★★★★★ (5 stars)
This book talks about a boy, August Pullman, who has a deformed face who struggles through 5th grade because of bullies and other challenges.
It’s also a book about overcoming setbacks in everyday life with
perseverance and resilience, and how you shouldn’t judge someone by their looks. This moral relates to the quote: “Don’t judge a book by it’s cover”.
This is a fiction book. I thought this was a great book, and it’s moral applies to everyone. If you like books about friendship and uniqueness, than this book is for you. I think everybody would like this book if they just gave it try. It has a meaningful life lesson, and any reader is likely to also read the sequel. A line from the book is: “But I know ordinary kids don’t make other ordinary kids run away screaming in playgrounds. I know ordinary kids don’t get stared at wherever they go.”
