Wonder by R.J. Palacio
August (Auggie) Pullman was born with a facial difference 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?
Good read – funny and insightful – can’t wait to see the movie. It was interesting hearing the views of people closest to Auggie and how they dealt with his situation. And great how he found the strength to persevere through the torment from bullies at school. All school kids should read this book. – Review by Janice
