Do you guys read middle grade or children’s books? Do you enjoy them? I certainly do. So when the author asked me to review his debut book, I couldn’t refuse it because of first thing, look at the cover! And it is fantasy, so who could refuse? Because, children + fantasy = Best combination!
Before starting this book, I had heard so many great things about it. I never heard anything bad about this, so obviously my expectations were high about this. And yes, it didn’t disappoint me. In fact, it was way too good for my imagination. There are some stories which touch you deeply, and surely it was one of them. This is a story about 11 years old August Pullman who doesn’t have a normal face. He has a rare medical facial deformity, which he refers to as “mandibulofacial dysostosis”, more commonly known as Treacher Collins syndrome and a cleft palate. After his birth, he went through multiple operations on his face to look like what he was now.
