August is not a normal looking kid. He has undergone 27 surgeries and is only 10 years old. People are not used to his face
First Day of School
You are so ugly.
When August goes to school for the first time, he realizes that it is a whole new world. On the first day he meets some bullies. One of them he knows from the school tour. His name is Julian.
This part definitely looks like August.
This is Halloween and August is supposed to be dressed up as Boba Fett. Instead he comes as Bleeding Scream. Jack and Julian don't know that, so they make fun of August in front of Bleeding Scream who was actually August. So basically Jack backstabbed August.
At Nature Retreat
August goes on a field trip to the Nature Retreat in Pennsylvania. Jack and August go into the woods to excrete. They meet two seventh graders in the forest When Eddie and his gang start insulting August, Amos comes into the scene.
Am I watching Lord of The Rings? With Gollum in front of my eyes?
Yep! I have never seen anything worse in my life.
August comes back from the Nature Retreat and everybody likes him. There are no bullies to August besides Julian.
Back at School
This is the Graduation at Beecher Preparatory School. Mr. Tushman presents the Henry Ward Beecher Medal of Excellence to August. This is not a surprise because August united the whole school from the beginning to the end.
And... I would like to give the Beecher Medal of Excellence to.... August Pullman.
