"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.

        Unicorn 992, I just wanted to say that August does no have one eye. I thought that to, but then I read the book. It is just the way the author draws it.

          Much like everyone else... this book touched me. It made me consider times when I may have judged people by their appearance. The book itself is great in that it tells the story by the perspective of each character. I've never read anything like that. Thumbs up all around. Can't wait to watch the movie too.

            Wonder, by R. J. Palacio is one of my favorite books. This book showed me what it was like to different outside, but the same 10 year old kid inside. The book left me breathless, the events in the book were like little bubbles of excitement ready to burst! Showing not only the perspectives of Auggie, it also shows you the perspective of the challenges of being a friend and sibling of Auggie is like... trying not to give into peer pressure everyday, and being able to stand up for your friend all the time.

              This book wonder has a very meaningful message in it that tells and shows you how to behave around people that do not look like you, talk like you or behave like you do. The book is basically saying choose kindness to the people around you

                August (Auggie) Pullman was born with a facial abnormality. The time has come for the bright, ten-year old to leave his safe, nonjudgmental world of being homeschooled, and time to start a new journey. However, this new journey will require the shy boy to face some problems he didn't face when he was in the safe hands of his parents, at home. Starting a new school is both dreadful and fearful for Auggie. But, can Auggie's new peers manage to see Auggie for what he is underneath? Or is he going to regret switching from being homeschooled? I'd recommend this book for any reader, but, specifically readers that like inspiring or uplifting endings.

                  This is a great book about a child named August who was born deformed and he becomes friends with a few people, but not everyone likes him because of what he looks like even though he's a very nice boy. He wants to quit school. Read the book to find out more.

                    Its sad, amazing, everything. The wonder movie is coming up, too. Auggie's life isn't exactly great but, he still manages to not care about other people's rude comments

                      This book is different in the way that it is told from different peoples point of views. It is both equally sad and happy, but the book is very captivating. I loved reading this book and I could connect with each character.
