"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 has got to be one of the best books! It is touching, and yes, it made me cry. It's so incredible though! It's a GREAT book for boys and girls.

        Best book ever. It's a little sad but soooo good. It's about this kid names August and his face was formed a little weird as a baby. Everywhere he goes people stare at him. He is homeschooled by his mom but this yea they want him to go to school. It's all about the hardships that he faces at school. AMAZING!

            i love this book because his story is so sad. my favorite part is when august meets summer. i like this part because summer doesn't care that he has a deformed face . she just wants to be his friend.

              Wonder is an amazing story about a boy named August who has a irregular face. He has been home schooled for the beginning of his life. Now his mother signs him up for fifth grade a Beecher Prep(school). I think that R.J. Palacio did a fabulous job!

                August has a deformed face and it is preventing him from going to school, until now. This is one of my favorite books and i definatly recommend it!

                      This is one of the best books I have ever read! The characters, particularly Augie, are fantastic. The story pulls you in immediately and stays with you long after the last page. I hope this first-time author continues writing!
