"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.

        This book was so inspiring that I nearly cried. This book is about August (Auggie) Pullman, who has a rare medical facial deformity, also known as Treacher Collins syndrome or a cleft palate. He is starting in a new school, at age ten, and he is easily the easiest target for bullying. As he goes through the school year, people are jealous, people are supporting, and some people are just neutral. He bears through it all and he forms the most heart-breaking story ever made. I recommend this book to anyone who loves a good book.

          Wonder was a novel that I enjoyed reading. I thought the message was really strong, to love yourself the way you are. Auggie was a GREAT main character, and to have his POV was amazing. This book was SO hyped that I had to pick it up. You might say that i was 4% disappointed, but who cares about the 4%? Anyway, AWESOME novel, totally recommend it.

            I just finished this book. It's amazing!!!!! It tells you about how you should or shouldn't treat people. It really show a now-a-days picture in your mind, what I mean is, you can see stuff happening like this all the time, the bullying. I started crying a few times. It is a very emotional book. I imagined many times about the hardships Auggie was put in to. I wondered, that could happen to anyone. Even me. I could've been called horrible things, because of my appearence. I hope you geta chance to read this book once in you're lifetime. Because it's a "Wonder".....

                I love the book, it a really good book. It teach's kids not to look on the outside of people but the inside. I personally like the boy called Jack in the book he stood up for August the boy that has facial problems. There is a girl called Summer she is really nice and sits with August everyday. They came up with and idea that they should call it the Summer table. August has a sister called Olivia or Via and a mum and dad. I personally think everyone should read this book.

                  I totally agree! It is a very good book to introduce to kids that some people are different. It also teaches the importance of kindness, and accepting the differences of others!
