August (Auggie) Pullman was born with a facial deformity that prevented him from going to a mainstream school-until now. He's about to enter fifth grade at Beecher Prep, and if you've ever been the new kid, then you know how hard that can be. 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, despite appearances? R. J. Palacio has crafted an uplifting novel full of wonderfully realistic family interactions, lively school scenes, and writing that shines with spare emotional power. "Wonder is a book with such a big, wide heart- it shows how we are all fragile, imperfect, and perfectly beautiful creatures. A wonderful novel by a wonder of a writer!" - Julia Alvarez, author of Return to Sender, Before We Were Free, Finding Miracles, and the Tía Lola Stories

    I really enjoyed this book. I was a bit distracted reliving the same events through the words of different characters but found that interesting after a bit. Overall, I really enjoyed it.

    I love this book. It's really funny and very realistic. It tells a true story of what children and families go through with special needs.

    I'm thought I probably wasn't going to like but guess what I loved it I'm going to middle school and that gave me confidence to not be afraid anymore.

    Love this book!!!! Empathy for the underdog! The narration of the main character is terrible! Almost unbearable to listen to. The other characters are really good!!!
