Don't judge a book by it's cover
August Pullman is a 10 year old kid who lives in New York with his mom, dad, sister, and dog. He has a rare face disease. Auggie has been homeschooled all his life and has just started private school. As Auggie struggles to fit in socially at school, his sister is trying to figure out who she is and where she wants to stand at home and in her school. Auggie faces many difficulties as he tries to grow and be mature. Auggie fortunately makes two good friends. Although there were bumps in the road for Auggie's future he made it all the way through his fifth grade year. He even won an award.
"'Thank you for making me go to school,' I said quietly'" (Palacio 309).
This shows that Auggie is truly thankful that he went to school. He first hated the idea of him at a private school with other kids. Soon after, he realized he shouldn't have judged the school because he really liked it after all.
In life you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover. For example, when you meet a new person they could end up as your best friend, or you are choosing a college/job, or even making choices.
