Description

"We all have scars only we can own."

When Robert Hoge was born, he had a tumor the size of a tennis ball in the middle of his face and short, twisted legs. Surgeons removed the tumor and made him a new nose from one of his toes. Amazingly, he survived - with a face that would never be the same.

Strangers stared at him. Kids called him names, and adults could be cruel, too. Everybody seemed to agree that he was "ugly". But Robert refused to let his face define him. He played pranks, got into trouble, had adventures with his big family, and finally found a sport that was perfect for him to play.

Then Robert came face to face with the biggest decision of his life.

This life, this funny, moving, and true story of an ordinary boy with an extraordinary face, is perfect for fans of Wonder and shows how what makes us "ugly" also makes us who we are.

wow

It was so interesting to listen to this story. I taught a student who was born with a similar mass on her face. to think about the pain and struggles that she has been through makes me have a whole new respect for her.

wonderful

this story taught me how to look at myself with more confidence in who I am. I did not want to stop reading this book and I wouldn't have had I not had school. I've heard of robert in my younger years. And I've always loved his way of life, learning how to ignore comments that had brought him Down. I now always think of him when I tell my own story of having 8 surgery on my own big squishy nose.

Truly an amazing story.

I hope he writes a more in-depth narrative on his mental and emotional victories he had growing up in this unforgiving world. I've learned from his story and many others will also

Mr Hoge

Robert you set an example to others how to triumph over adversity. You have shone where others may lie down and die! I take my hat off to you. You tell your story candidly with no flowers. It is an easy and enjoyable read that entices the reader to keep on reading and listening.
What a great book! Please write and read more!

Not as inspirational as I hoped

This was a good memoir, but I was hoping for a little more inspiration. I wanted it to really inspire readers to choose kindness. I did read it simultaneously with Wonder so my expectations may have been too high. My students seemed to enjoy it.
