The story is mostly taking place in the hospital and at Robert's home. The reason why the setting is mostly in the hospital if because his mom didn't want him because of how ugly he is.
Robert had 4 siblings waiting for him at home and they were the ones that Robert´s mom and dad let decide if they should bring Robert home or not. However, Robert was still in a battle against himself trying to stay alive with the tumor on his face.
Robert got brought back home from the hospital and got to spend time with family, his only worry was that he had to start school soon and was feared of being bullied.
The scariest part about Robert's journey is that he had to go to school with an ugly face. He got bullied most of the time and did not want to keep going back to school. They would call him names and stare. Robert tried telling himself not to let them get to him, but most of the time they did.
Robert decides that he will not let the other kids get to him, his parents decided to hold a program for him and other disabled kids. Robert was taken out of school and put into a private school while he went in and out of surgeries.
They held a program for Robert and a fundraiser and all the kids realized how cool of a kid Robert really is. Soon, Robert made a new friend every day and realized that even if he was uglier and more disabled than the other kids, he still was just like them.
