"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 want to read it. I think it is for my age level, so It would be a really good book for me. I know that we will never know what his face is, so I think that there will be a lot of suspicious things in the book. I hope i like the book. I am not sure if his face is ugly, or damaged.

          I actually don't, because I already have a perfect image in my mind, and I don't want the movie to change it. :D

                this book really teaches us about society and how they treat others according to their looks.

                    people judge him? Thats really mean. I have a question. Do they reveal his face at the end? Or do they keep it a secret for ever?

                    This is a great book about a young boy named Auggie. He is disfigured on his face, and it tells how he learns to deal with this as he switches from home school to regular school. It is nice how it switches from character to character, but I was a little disappointed by some of the situations. I felt that there could have been a bit more to it.

                      Wonder was the best book I have read in a long time. Told from the perspective of each main character, their voice makes this a powerful story that sticks with you long after you have finished reading it.
