"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.

    I think wonder shows that even the most unlikely of all people can be liked and achieve great things as august, a sadly deformed child shows us.

      I think Wonder shows that being deformed isn't always a bad thing and that people that disrespect them are nasty. Augusts story is definitely an exciting book too. I would definitely recommend this book for ages 8+

              This book is a good model of how to stand up for people who are different. I think that if everyone would act like Jack, the world would be much more peaceful.

                I think that it is nice how he got to go to start a school. I like how. The principal introducted him to some of the kid so he knows a fue. I like how jack ends up to be his friend. I give it a five stars
