About Wonder by R.J. Palacio:

Auggie feels ordinary – inside. But ordinary kids don’t make other ordinary kids run away screaming in
playgrounds. Born with a terrible facial abnormality, Auggie has been homeschooled by his parents his whole life. Now, for the first time, he’s being sent to a real school – and he’s dreading it. Can he convince his new classmates that he’s just like them, underneath it all?
