    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.

    Jay says: "A Beautiful Story"
    "This should be required reading for EVERYONE."

    Would you consider the audio edition of Wonder to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version.


    What other book might you compare Wonder to and why?

    "One Good Dog" and "the Dog Who Danced" both by Susan Wilson. They both show the goodness and kindness of people and the difference that makes to the lives of others. Also, that from sad situations good things can happen.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    Definitely August.

    On June 5, 2002, 14-year-old Elizabeth Smart, the daughter of a close-knit Mormon family, was taken from her home in the middle of the night by religious fanatic, Brian David Mitchell and his wife, Wanda Barzee. She was kept chained, dressed in disguise, repeatedly raped, and told she and her family would be killed if she tried to escape. After her rescue on March 12, 2003, she rejoined her family and worked to pick up the pieces of her life.

    Erin says: "Uplifting?"
    "Strength through adversity."
