I had not read a kid’s book in a long time but heard about this one somewhere and was able to get it on ebook quite quickly. This is a warm hearted story of August, a 10-year-old with a facial deformity that sounds a lot like Treacher Collins syndrome (though it is not named). Lucky for Auggie he has a loving family. He goes through the expected problems when he goes to school for the first time but makes some good friends and is pretty successful. Told from alternating viewpoints of Auggie and other kids (no adults) this is a quick feel-good read. Yes, "kids can be cruel" but they can be pretty darn nice too.
