313 pages condensed into 16 pages (plus a title page and character list).
Although this adaptation has the same "parts" of the original book (Part 1: August, Part 2: Via), the adaptation is not written in first person. R.J. Palacio writes each part in first person as that character. This is a fabulous writing technique - but it can be confusing for students with cognitive delays.
This is also a nice tool that can be used to give students a summary/overview of the book before reading the Palacio's masterpiece.
