    August (Auggie) Pullman was born with a facial deformity 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?R. J. Palacio has crafted an uplifting novel full of wonderfully realistic family interactions, lively school scenes, and writing that shines with spare emotional power.

    I bought this as my first audio book when I lost my voice for a couple of weeks. I was reading Wonder with my fourth grade students as a read-aloud and thus needed some tech help at that time. We absolutely loved the performance and the different voices for the different perspectives. My students were absolutely enthralled with the story and the narrators. I love it because I can focus on teachable moments and observing the children's reactions as they listen, needing only to pause the recording to talk about something important. Very impressed and excited to continue my journey into audio books for my students and myself!
