"Wonder" is the funny, sweet and incredibly moving story of Auggie Pullman. Born with a terrible facial abnormality, this shy, bright ten-year-old has been home-schooled by his parents for his whole life, in an attempt to protect him from the stares and cruelty of the outside world. Now, for the first time, Auggie is being sent to a real school - and he's dreading it. The thing is, Auggie's just an ordinary kid, with an extraordinary face. But can he convince his new classmates that he's just like them, underneath it all? Through the voices of Auggie, his big sister Via, and his new friends Jack and Summer, "Wonder" follows Auggie's journey through his first year at Beecher Prep. Frank, powerful, warm and often heart-breaking, "Wonder" is a book you'll read in one sitting, pass on to others, and remember long after the final page.

      So good! Most kids have probably reacted weirdly to someone or something that looks out of the normal. This book shows the perspective of just that. I highly, highly, highly recommend it!

          This book will draw your attention, I think this book has a very good life lesson and you can realize what its like to be someone that has had a lot of surgery's, or even having a disability, you get to feel what its like to be that person and what its like to get bullied. I highly recommend for everyone that loves to ready to read this story.

                I really liked this book. It taught me to be a respectful person. I like how each chapter is its own person's point of view.

                    Wonder is the most amazing book ever. I read a lot and have never read something so powerful and inspirational in my life! The movie starring Julia Roberts is coming out tomorrow and i'm so excited. I can't believe this was R.J Palacio' s first novel. I loved it . This book is highly recomended to anyone who loves books.
