    Best Book Ever! It was a little emotional though.

    Wonder Book Review - R.J. Palacio The book Wonder by R.J. Palacio begins with an introduction to August Pullman, the main character, who is also known as Auggie. It begins how R.J. Palacio describes how August has Treacher Collins Syndrome, which is a face disorder. August is not at school, as he is homeschooled. The story is about how August begins going to school, instead of being homeschooled. When he goes to meet his principal, Mr. Tushman. Without August knowing, Mr. Tushman announces they're taking a tour. Mr. Tushman also says that Auggie will meet some of the students that will take him around for a tour. Jack-Will, Julian and Charlotte take them around. Charlotte is a pretty nice girl, but Julian is very rude to August. Jack-Will is on and off to start with, what will happen next? Well, lucky for you I wrote this book review saying how good the book is so you'll go out and buy it! I really liked the book Wonder because it shows how you can't judge a book by its cover, except instead, you can't judge a person by their face. August shouldn't have to worry in school with bullies and people that talk behind his back, whether he has Treacher Collins Syndrome or not. There are lots of people that get bullied, even if they don't have a disorder, too. Auggie gets bullied because of his disorder, which R.J. Palacio shows isn't okay. I think it's awesome the way she was inspired to write the book: She had seen a child with Treacher Collins Syndrome at an ice cream parlour and lots of other kids were staring. She did her own research and was inspired to write the book Wonder. It's really cool how she included that scene in the book! This is where Jack-Will has a flashback to when he saw a kid with Treachers Collins Syndrome and then he realised it was Auggie. I also really liked Wonder because it can be funny, sad, happy, silly, and most importantly, it can be a Wonder. There are a few books about Wonder, but most of them are just about every characters point of view. But there is a book called 'We're All a Wonder' which is basically a short story for younger people. Overall, I think I'd rate Wonder a 4 out of 5 and I am so excited to see the movie!

    Wonder Book Review R.J Palacio Wonder is a creative and different story that a lot of people can relate to in a way. August is a boy that has never been to school before and the reason behind this is because he was born with a very rare disease that changes the appearance of his face.After many years of being in hospital and having 27 surgeries his parents decided he has to go to school.After many meetings August made it into Beecher Prep.August was practically forced to go to school, it seemed bad but he ended make some new friends.He had ups and downs, but his Grade 5 life ended with many achievements.August is like a normal kid: he like Star-Wars, he plays his XBOX and he also learns the same way any other kid would. R.J Palacio has made these characters in such a way that they seem real, every character is truthful and interesting.I love this story because it shows love, hate and things that happen in the background that no-one could notice.Personally my favourite thing about the story is the problems that happened because they always find a hearty way to solve them.The relaxing but sudden cliff-hangers will have you hooked in 5, no 3, pages into the book.

    This book is so good! I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who doesn't like sad books. Basically it's about a boy named Auggie who has a deformed face. He is starting 5th grade at a new school. This is my whole school read. I love this book!
