"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 was so amazing I couldn't even put it down. It was really emotional and I could feel the pain Auggie ( the main character) was going through. If you loved this book another book you might want to try is Out of my Mind. Again this is a really good read and is great for 5th graders.

                This is now one of my favorite books of all time. It's about a boy named August who has a face disorder. Up until now, he was home schooled, but his parents think it would be best for him to go to a public school. When three kids introduce him to the school, he thinks it might be alright. But as Auggie leads you through his year of sixth grade, he goes through many twists, turns, ups, and downs. This book leads you through August's point of view, his sister's point of view his best friends, mind, and more. Personally, I think absolutely anyone would at least like this book. Happy reading.

                  This book is funny and creative in its own way. Not only is it entertaining, but it teaches the importance of true friends.

                    This book is about a boy named Augie. His face definitely isn't perfect. Him and everyone around him learn about friendship. It is amazing I greatly recommend it.
