"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 book is about a kid August trying to fit in. But what gives him trouble is his facial deformity, which means he was born with a strange but extraordinary face. When he goes to school for the first time, will he make it through the year?

              So, let me be honest. I started reading this book as a Book club book in my class. As soon as we read August' point of view, as well as Via's we fathomed out that the symbols used in the book, such as "the universe was falling apart" showed Via's mature feelings and a simplistic future telling of what would soon happen in the book. August Pullman, a "freaky" boy was to start middle school with other students his same age, which would be a risky chance and difficult, because August had a facial abnormality. Once he enters middle school, and Via enters highschool, both kids are in a fresh new slate. This book takes you through real friendships, actual views of fictional characters, emotion, death of a cuddly animal, and at the end, this book is what is a true ride through magic reality, and everyone is truly a WONDER.

                      This is a amazing book. It is about a boy with a deform face and when he goes to school almost every one is being mean to him. I recommend this book to all ages from 8-15
