Meet Auggie. He is about to start fifth grade at Beecher Prep. Unlike me, though, Auggie has never been to school before; he was homeschooled by his mom. The reason for homeschooling was not a philosophical one; Auggie does not look 'normal.' As he says, 'I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse.'
