"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.

    Best. Book. Ever! August/Auggie is a very sweet little boy. I would love to be his friend. Auggie feels sad when he hears people talking about his face abnormality. They talk about him meanly. They say mean stuff. One of his new friends at school betrayed him. But, Jack Will then did something in the story that was remarkable. It was such a cute moment. It was small, but cute.

        I first did not feel like reading this book. I was at a party, and my mom dropped me off. So she went to a book store and got Wonder. After the party I was like, mom!!! After about 2 years later, I read it. I read it because it just sat on my book shelf with my other books!! So anyway, it's is just a heart warming book. It's about a boy that was born with a diffrent face than others. His name was Auggie. So first Auggie goes to school, then meets Summer and Jack, then goes to camp and gets in a fight, then the end of school!!!!!!! A quick summary. Oops, I forgot a important part, he won the most important medal the Henry Ward Beecher medal!!!!!! I started crying at that point. I can still remember what Isabel said to Auggie, she said " you are realy a wonder, Auggie. You are a wonder." I just LOVE that book!!!!!!! I recommend you to read Wonder the best book in the world!!!

          An emotional roller coaster that takes you along the journey of a boy who was, because of medical problems, born with a deformed face. The difficulties he faces, especially seen on-screen, are heart-wrenching, and sometimes people make fun of him so much he wants to cry. But he barely has any private place to break down like that. The journey for him is very difficult, but somehow he finds way in the path full of thorns. He's an ordinary kid with an extraordinary face, but that won't stop him from winning everyone's hearts in the end. Though he is challenged with the difficulties of having a deformed face, can he still emerge a hero, a lovable protagonist? This is one of the best books I have ever read. The cover may be dull, but you definitely want to give this book a try. Hands-down, it's an unanimous 5/5.
