"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.

      . R.J Palaco explains a wonder-ful story about a 5th grader that boy named august who doesn't have a normal face but he still thrives throughout the story and keeps his head up even in rough times. I would give the book Wonder a 5 star rating because of those reasons. Make sure to read the book Julian too!

        If you like realistic fiction and funny stories, then this is the right book for you. The story is very interesting because if you think there is a part where someone is mean, it might surprise you later when it's their point of view in a chapter. I recommend this book.

              I didn't read this book. Does anyone know if they reveal his face in some part of the book? or does it at least get better?

                IT GETS A LOT BETTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And no, they don't reveal his face, but eventually, they explain what it looks like.

                  I think that this book Wonder is a wonderful heart warming story. Even though Auggie has a disorder he still has friends, that will always be there for him. His sister and parents, are also very important in this story, because they also help Auggie along the way.

                      I've read Wonder, and from what I remember, this tale is about "Auggie" Pullman, who has a facial problem. But together, Auggie and his friends create a wonderful journey through Beecher Prep. Many people support Auggie, like his sister, Via, and his parents. I like this book so much, that I would wan't to re-read it all over again and maybe help create the sequel. Thanks R. J. Palacio!
