Summary
«Em dic August, per cert. No penso descriure la meva cara. Segur que és molt pitjor que tot el que us esteu imaginant.» August (Auggie) Pullman ha nascut amb una greu deformació a la cara i s'ha hagut de sotmetre a tantes operacions que no ha pogut anar mai a l'escola; fins ara, que té deu anys i està a punt de començar cinquè a l'escola Beecher. Si alguna vegada heu sigut nous, ja sabeu que dur que és... Doncs imagineu-vos com deu ser quan tens una cara com l'August. ¿Aconseguirà que els seus companys l'acceptin com un més, encara que sigui el nen més estrany que han vist mai? «La inesperada sensació editorial de l'any.» The London Times «El que fa que aquesta novel·la sigui tan extraordinària i tan deliciosa és la insòlita generositat amb què R.J. Palacio ens explica la vida de l'Auggie. El resultat és una història preciosa i divertida –i que de vegades et fa plorar a llàgrima viva– sobre una transformació silenciosa.» The Wall Street Journal «En una meravella de debut, Palacio ha escrit una novel·la espurnejant que es llegeix d'una tirada i que és plena de personatges que et vénen ganes d'animar.» Entertainment Weekly
