Synopsis

SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE STARRING JULIA ROBERTS AND JACOB TREMBLAY!

Over 3 million people have read the #1 New York Times bestseller WONDER and have fallen in love with Auggie Pullman, an ordinary boy with an extraordinary face. 

The book that inspired the Choose Kind movement.

I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse.

August Pullman was born with a facial difference that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid—but his new classmates can’t get past Auggie’s extraordinary face. WONDER, now a #1 New York Times bestseller and included on the Texas Bluebonnet Award master list, begins from Auggie’s point of view, but soon switches to include his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others. These perspectives converge in a portrait of one community’s struggle with empathy, compassion, and acceptance.

"Wonder is the best kids' book of the year," said Emily Bazelon, senior editor at Slate.com and author of Sticks and Stones: Defeating the Culture of Bullying and Rediscovering the Power of Character and Empathy. In a world where bullying among young people is an epidemic, this is a refreshing new narrative full of heart and hope. R.J. Palacio has called her debut novel “a meditation on kindness” —indeed, every reader will come away with a greater appreciation for the simple courage of friendship. Auggie is a hero to root for, a diamond in the rough who proves that you can’t blend in when you were born to stand out.

Wonder is an amazing story because it had me feeling every emotion at points i just wanted to cry or laugh or scream at the book,throughout this book you go behind auggie pulman to a life of staring running away when people think you are not looking. This book inspired me to be more respectful of kids like auggie becuse who knows they may be extremly cool kids.

AUGUST IS SO CUTE THE WAY HE TALKS AND THE WAY HE PUTS THINGS FOR EXAMPLE " WE WERE JUST HANGING OUT AFTER SCHOOL" HE IS SO LITTLE HIS FRINDS CALL HIM LITTLE DUDE.

One of the best books ever read this book teaches you the meaning of frendship and well not to judge a book by its cover or in this case a little boy. this book is heart warming and will make you think a little differntly about a what a true friend looks like. This book makes stop & think about what we take for granted and it makes you want to do something different.

I think that Wonder is an amazing story of a boy in a hard situation. He looks different then other people. I think this is a story that show what its like to be bullied or having a hard time making friends. What I found so great about this book was the way that it showed the hardships that family members have when one of their loved ones is in a hard spot.

Wonder is one of my favourite books. Now, I'm liking it even more with the new Julian chapter in it! I really like how there's different points of view in this book. I wish there was a sequel to this book. I would reccomend it to kids, pre teens, young adults and adults. If I could, I would give this book 50 stars.:-)
