Y‘all this book surprised me with how much I genuinely loved it. I‘m not usually one for a book without some sort of magic or mayhem or monsters in it and this had none, unless you count the subtle golden toned magic of nostalgia but, alas, I do not. It did however make me cry twice, so all in all a rather good book. One I will likely read again

August Pullman is a 10 year old boy who has had to undergo 27 surgeries. These surgeries have caused many scars and facial abnormalities causing him to be very self conscious. Due to his insecurities, he has been homeschooled his entire life. He is about to enter 5th grade when his parents make the recommendation that he attends school for his first time. Although he doesn‘t like the idea, he decides to give it a try.

owen.lauzon The change is massive for him and it‘s starts rough but August doesn‘t back down. With the help of his family and friends he is able to navigate his way through the challenges that grade 5 holds. I would recommend this book to anyone who has seen the movie or is looking for a great story. I would rate this book 5/5 stars, I personally thought this book was better then the movie and 1d
owen.lauzon that is a very rare occurrence for me. The book is split into four different parts, each part is written in first person but from a different characters perspective. Each chapter uses the same pronouns but the part‘s title tells you which characters perspective is being displayed. 1d
MissYaremcio Thank you for the review Owen! I would agree, the book is better than the movie in this case! 6/6 1d

Breaking my hiatus with this audio book. So far, I‘m really enjoying it.

As I‘m hoping to revamp my account here, what are some things you‘d like to see from me??

I loved how the different languages were used – casually, yet effectively showing us how it is to struggle in this multilingual world. It feels weird to write this but it shows that Asian people are different, are distinct. The Korean girl is unique, the Singaporean girl is unique, the Japanese-American girl is unique. We are Asian, and to many people we may look similar, but we are so different from each other.

Bookzombie Great to see you and great review! 🙂 2d

Ugh 😫 this book drags with zero connection between the characters, relationships, and dialogue. The characters are only relevant to one another because of too many shared traumatic experiences. More importantly, the characters didn't move forward in their lives because the author wrote a built up of secrecy as a plot twist reveal 🤷‍♀️.The author's writing is scattered, phrases are outdated just like the characters.

This variation to the Little Mermaid tale is absolutely amazing! And, of course the illustrations are breathtaking. Definitely a longer #PictureBook , but well worth the journey. Letter L #BBRC

I can't believe I have read 19 volumes of this series! I am bad with series. I just need to read one more and I am done. Hard to believe after all these years this series is coming to an end!

This one was fun and started tying up loose ends in preparation for the last volume. I just felt it was a bit of filler and actually kind of a disappointment for the second to last volume ever.

I am looking forward to how they wrap it all up, though!
