"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.

      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.

                  (New review) Wonder is a very WONDERous book. It is about a boy named Auggie with a special face. A VERY special face. He even says in the book, "Whatever your thinking my face looks like, it's worse." He has a condition called Treacher Collins Syndrome where it badly deforms your face. Auggie is the main character and he is finally going to a regular school, he's been home schooled all his life. It's called Beecher Prep, a private school. Auggie thinks it's going to be fine. But will it? Read to find out! This book is mainly based on so many diffrent things including; bullying, what your actions and words do, and more! This book showed me how to not bully anyone, because you never know what they're going through, and especially someone with a special face. If you want an life changing book to read, I totally recommend this one to you. This book is so rich in detail, you will LOVE it.
