It's a sad but great story about a gorilla who lives in a mall after he was orphaned at a young age. He lives in the mall with a dog and an elephant. Everyday the janitor's daughter leaves him art supplies so he can draw.
A beautiful story by Palacio that shows you a life lesson of making genuine friends and developing friendships. The main character is a boy named Auggie who has a facial deformity. He has been homeschooled just until now in which he will attend a private school. There he is bullied and teased by classmates but befriends a kind girl named Summer who helps him regain his courage and make new friends.
