Audience: 5th Grade - 8th Grade
A first novel about a boy who enters school for the first time as a middle schooler. August was born with severe facial deformities, and has been home-schooled so far. Now his parents feel he needs to learn to interact with other students his age.
August is scared, but he also wants to be treated as a normal kid. We hear this story from several different viewpoints; August himself, his older sister, and some other students in his school. A difficult, wonderful story about friendship, acceptance, and self-worth.
