August was born with a facial abnormality. His parents home schooled him and at age 10 he wanted to go to school. He is a normal boy, but he looks different and everyone at school pays close attention to this difference. In this book, August shares his point of view. In the further chapters, others share their point of view which helps the audience gather a better understanding of point of view. I would incorporate this book in a 5th grade class and teach how important point of view is. This book would also teach the students the importance of what their actions and words really do to others. This is a perfect book for preventing bullying and it also shares a bullies point of view.
