"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.

        I loved this book so much. It was a very sad yet funny story about a boy who has a deformed face but he just wants others to think that he is normal except for his extraordinary face. His helpful family members and a couple of good friends make him feel like this but not everyone is cooperating. August goes through a lot of hardships and obstacles but he does control himself. This is one of the fattest and saddest books I ever read. Thank you R.j. Palacio for this heartwarming book. Definitely I would want the whole world to read this book. If you do then you're one of the greatest and smartest people to me. Auggie rules!!!

                Wonder by R.J. Palacio is an amazing book. The story of Auggie is inspirational, and will touch your heart and spirit in a way that will change the way you look at the world and other people. We all have struggles in our life, some more obvious than others, but this book will help you see how important it is to love and accept others, and find beauty in those around us. I loved this book, I couldn't put it down, and couldn't wait to pick it back up again. If you want a book that will tap every emotion and keep you entertained along the way, then Wonder is the book for you!
