"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 is a GREAT book! It's about a boy who faces challenges from his facial deformances. At first he did not go to school. Then in middle school (starting in 5th grade) his parents decide to send him. He makes friends, but not for the right reason. before school the principal tells certain students to be friends with him to make him feel good because it's his first time going to school. Jack out the 3 explained in the book, was really the only one who actually stood up to the challenge and became friends with him. Jullian is especially mean to him. Jullian started "war" because Jack was hanging out with Auggie(nickname for August) all the time over him. Auggie finds out that the principal made jack be his friend but jack explains he actually ended up to like him as friend. He also has a protective sister, and loving parents. also included in this book is summer.

                      This book was so amazing I couldn't even put it down. It was really emotional and I could feel the pain Auggie (main character) was going through. If you loved this book another book you might want to try is Out of my Mind. Again this is a really good read and is great for 5th graders.
