August Pullman was born with a facial difference that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid--but his new classmates can't get past Auggie's extraordinary face. It begins from Auggie's point of view, but soon switches to include his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others. These perspectives converge in a portrait of one community's struggle with empathy, compassion, and acceptance. Defeating the Culture of Bullying and Rediscovering the Power of Character and Empathy. In a world where bullying among young people is an epidemic, this is a refreshing new narrative full of heart and hope. R.J. Palacio has called her debut novel "a meditation on kindness" --indeed, every reader will come away with a greater appreciation for the simple courage of friendship. Auggie is a hero to root for, a diamond in the rough who proves that you can't blend in when you were born to stand out.

For instance, why people get married in the first place and what can go wrong; three misconceptions children have about divorce; how to help a child accept a new man or woman in a parent's life; how to adjust to living with one parent and how to overcome the profound feelings of loss and hurt every child of divorced parents experiences. Why Are We Getting a Divorce? is a book for the entire family. It helps parents understand some of their children's concerns about divorce and offers children sympathy, reassurance and sound advice. With their trademark blend of humor and sensitivity, Peter Mayle's thoughtful text and Arthur Robins's delightful illustrations will bring smiles to even the saddest faces.
