"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 awesome! The main character is a boy named August. He has a deformed face and has been home schooled his whole life. Now, as a fifth grader, he is going to school for the first time. How will the kids react? Well, read R.J. Palacio's first novel to find out what happens.

              I wanted to read this book because I loved medieval times. this book is not about medieval times, but it is about a prince who is supposedly "killed" but he escapes into a disguise. Will someone find him? read The False Prince to find out.

                    AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING BOOK! At first, I didn't think it would be so great, but after I read it I LOVED it! Anyways, it's about a boy named Auggie (August) Pullman who has a type of disease which makes his face not look like most other kids'. He's always been homeschooled until...he not only begins his first year of middle school, but his first year of school with other kids, and with a so to say 'different' face. This book is all about how he adjusts to life in school. There are some kind kids who were happy to meet him on the inside and became great friends with him-- and some rude kids who bullied him. This book is also told from different people's perspective. It starts with Auggie's, then moves on to his caring older sister Via telling the story, his good friend Summer telling the story, etc.
