I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking,
it's probably worse.
August (Auggie) Pullman was born with a facial deformity
that prevented him from going to a mainstream school—until
now. He's about to start 5th 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 written a spare, warm, uplifting story
that will have readers laughing one minute and wiping away
tears the next. With wonderfully realistic family
interactions (flawed, but loving), lively school scenes, and
short chapters, Wonder is accessible to readers of all levels.
