And dust and ashes all that is." -Tennyson

YA book challenge: Top five male characters (4/5)

August Pullman, Wonder by RJ Palacio

Everyone deserves a standing ovation because we all overcometh the world.”

August is a boy who looks very different than other children. He many times hides his face behind a mask, despite his efforts to be self-confident. He is a huge Star Wars fan, and has a sweet heart, despite how quickly other children react to his appearance. His story is potent and necessary in a culture that kills the things it fears.
