About this item

I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse. August Pullman was born with a facial deformity 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.

This is one of the best books I have ever read. Heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time. It captures the middle school feeling like nothing I have ever read before. August Pullman will forever stay in my heart, as well as his whole story. I will read this with my children, it is a must read!

I have been dying for this book ever since I knew about it. It teaches people that no matter how a person looks, you should always treat them how you want to be treated. Jack Will is really nice to August so is Summer and they don't care about how August looks. I think this is a really good book and I think the author should make a movie based on the book. I have always tried to imagine August and Summer and everyone else in my mind. But I really want to see August's face. i always try to picture it as hard as I can. Once again this is a really good book and i think the author should make more books. :) :)
