#1NEW YORK TIMESBESTSELLER Millions of peoplehave fallenin love with Auggie Pullman, an ordinary boy with an extraordinary face-who shows us that kindness brings us together no matter how far apart we are.Read the book that inspired the Choose Kind movement, a major motion picture, and the critically acclaimed graphic novelWhite Bird.I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse.August Pullman was born with a facial difference that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid-but his new classmates can't get past Auggie's extraordinary face. Beginning from Auggie's point of view and expanding to include his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others, the perspectives converge to form a portrait of one community's struggle with empathy, compassion, and acceptance. In a world where bullying among young people is an epidemic, this is a refreshing new narrative full of heart and hope.R.J. Palaciohas called her debut novel "a meditation on kindness" -indeed, every reader will come away with a greater appreciation for the simple courage of friendship. Auggie is a hero to root for, a diamond in the rough who proves thatyou can't blend in when you were born to stand out
