Description

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

Over 6 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.

    I love it because I talks about thing that actually happen I real life even though you don't have a disability like Augie but it is not all about Augie it's about all the characters not one like Jack he gets bullied by Julian and because he hangs out with Augie, so anybody can be connected with this book grandpas, grandmas, sisters, brothers, even you!😉

    Wonder by R.J. Palacio is outstanding. The story is written perfectly, from the perspectives of everyone who knows Auggie and Auggie himself. This book is packed with humor, heart, and an amazing journey to be told. I strongly recommend that you read this book, before the movie comes out in November!

    I love this book sooo much. When my teacher read the first page of the book. I fell in love with it. And when I read the book I'm always so deep into. I never take my eyes off of it. Unless my teacher wants the book back. But I really love this book. And I would like one for myself❤️❤️❤️❤️💗💗💗💖💖💖❣️❣️❣️❣️💝💝💝💞💞💞💕💘💜💙💙💚💚💚💚💛💛💛💛❤️❤️❤️💛💛💚💚💙💜💙💛❤️💛💟💟💟💟💟💟💟💟💟💟💟💯💯💯💯💯💯
