"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 is a awesome book. I recommend getting it for your children and reading it together. Different in today's world is discouraged. Different by birth can be terrible unless you have wise parents. My 4th grade granddaughter is reading this and she is engrossed! I also recommend 365 Days of Wonder. Enjoy!!!

Wonder is a MUST READ
One of the most enjoyable, thought provoking and important reads for adults and particularly children. The book's seemingly simple structure, the children's perspective and vivid imagery that's conjured up make this such an easy and engaging read. There is just so much to get out of this book and the emotional journey is thrilling...I've cried on the tube, wanted to jump up and cheer at points and haven't forgotten one of the characters since reading it. All probably sounds OTT but really a fantastic read...thank you RJ Palacio!
