'My name is August. I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse.' Auggie wants to be an ordinary ten-year-old. He does ordinary things - eating ice cream, playing on his Xbox. He feels ordinary - inside. But ordinary kids don't make other ordinary kids run away screaming in playgrounds. Ordinary kids aren't stared at wherever they go. Born with a terrible facial abnormality, Auggie has been home-schooled by his parents his whole life. Now, for the first time, he's being sent to a real school - and he's dreading it. All he wants is to be accepted - but can he convince his new classmates that he's just like them, underneath it all? Now featuring a brand-new chapter told by bully Julian, Wonder is a funny, frank, astonishingly moving debut to read in one sitting, pass on to others, and remember long after the final page.

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!
