This character with that fact that he was born abnormal with his face all different to others. I can relate to him because when it was his first day of school he probably was no feeling the best and scared about what people would say about him, this realtes to me because when it was my frist day of school I was really scared of what people would say bout me and what would happen at school and if I would find any friends. I think he would have felt around the same for different reasons but the same way. I have not read this book but my school librarian roughly explained the main part of this movie which I can relate to. I think by the end he makes a new friends and so did I. I am not that sure because of this fact that I have not read the book but if I do then I will update this post and make sure it is right.
