Abstract:

Ten-year-old Auggie Pullman, who was born with extreme facial abnormalities and was not expected to survive, goes from being home-schooled to entering fifth grade at a private middle school in Manhattan, which entails enduring the taunting and fear of his classmates as he struggles to be seen as just another student.

"Su cara lo hace distinto y él solo quiere ser uno más. Camina siempre mirando al suelo, la cabeza gacha y el flequillo tratando en vano de esconder su rostro, pero, aun así, es objeto de miradas furtivas, susurros ahogados y codazos de asombro. August sale poco. Su vida transcurre entre las acogedoras paredes de su casa, entre la compañía de su familia, su perra Daisy y las increíbles historias de La guerra de las galaxias. Este año todo va a cambiar, porque este año va a ir, por primera vez, a la escuela. Allí aprenderá la lección más importante de su vida, la que no se enseña en las aulas ni en los libros de texto: crecer en la adversidad, aceptarse tal como es, sonreír a los días grises y saber que, al final, siempre encontrará una mano amiga."--Back cover.
