"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 WONDER-ful! I loved this book! The book is about a boy named August (Auggie) Pullman, who was born with a condition which sort of changed his face. This book was amazing though!

      Wonder by RJ Palacio is a story about a boy named August Pullman who was born with mandibulofacial dysostosis, a facial disease which makes Auggie look different. Wonder is realistic fiction and I recommend it to grades 2-6. It's a great book to read and one of my favorite books in the world. Auggie has been homeschooled by his Mom since he started learning so that it wouldn't be hard for Auggie at a real school. Then, at the first year of middle school, they decide to put Auggie in school. Auggie goes to school a week early to take a tour. The tour is given by 3 kids. Charlotte, Julian and Jack Will. When the tour is over, Auggie goes home and thinks about middle school. It should take you about 2-3 days to finish reading Wonder. When August starts school, kids stare, even a few teachers but at lunch, a girl named Summer sit's down with Auggie and they become friends just like that. The author's message is to not judge a book by its cover. Wonder is a WONDERful book to read and I hope you choose to read it. This book is really good!

        It is one of the best books I have ever read. Reading about a kid who has a rare disease an makes friends really makes me smile. I could read this over and over again. I like how the bully gets defeated by Auggie and his friends. This book really prepares you for what you are gonna see in middle school.

            I really like this book because it talks about the struggles of people who are different and how hard it is for them to make friends.
