The Disfigured Boy Who Loved Halloween


I’m about half way through a book that I’m reading to my daughter called Wonder. In it, the main character is a little boy named August. He was disfigured since birth and the story is about his journey to school and how he deals with everyone judging him.

I had to share what the boy had to say about Halloween:

“I wish every day could be Halloween. We could all wear masks all the time. Then we could walk around and get to know each other before we got to see what we looked like under the masks.”
