This book is about a boy, August, who has facial abnormality. Because of his insecurities, he never really went to school and didn't have much friends. But one day, his parents decided to finally send August to try to go to school. At first, of course, everybody in his class looks at him with the "Did you just kill someone" face. But gradually, August makes a good friend, Jack. August and Jack becomes really good friends, however, Jack betrays August, because he don't want to lose his old friends, who bully August. This leads to lots more problems between August and Jack, and even the school. This story is tragic, funny, and moving all at the same time. I think every middle schooler should read this book at least once, because it really teaches you and gives you a lesson about treating others how you are supposed to be.
