"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 read this book for school, thinking I'd hate it, and I was totally wrong. It was amazing. It made me laugh, cry, and everything in between. I totally recommend it.

                      Auggie Pullman is just a normal kid. But that isn’t how everyone else sees him. Auggie has a facial deformity, and other kids think he’s a “monster” and different from them because of his “scary” face. Auggie has been homeschooled his whole life, but is starting middle school at the local public school, where he doesn’t know anyone but everyone knows him, because of his face. This is the story of Auggie’s first experience with school, with friends, with bullies and trying to blend in. In R.J. Palacio’s debut novel, it’s about getting past the outside to see what’s on the inside. An incredible story, Wonder will be a a cherished book for ages to come. My thoughts: This was a WONDERful book. (See what I did there? :-) It’s very realistic and thinking about the events in this book happening in real life, you realize that no matter what someone looks like they’re as normal as you are. It is sad yet uplifting read at the same time. You just fall in love with Auggie, he’s such a sweet boy. Ugh, Julian. There’s always a Julian and you just have to find a way to not let them get to your head. If I knew Auggie, I would teach Julian a lesson. I recommend this book to everyone, and it is a great reminder to ALWAYS “Choose Kind!”
