    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.

    If you could sum up Wonder in three words, what would they be?

    inspired needed improvement


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Augie's sister's friend who always loved him as a brother, and did one of the most selfless and influential things in the book, and something that spoke to me, when she gave up her leading roll on opening night to Vi.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I enjoyed having different performers for the different characters. I thought the performances were wonderful, and each added another layer of understanding to all the characters combined. I don't think I would have imagined Augie's voice the way it was performed, and it really helped me immediately think of him as different and be able to picture him better from the beginning.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Definitely, I laughed out loud a lot, gasped in shock, worry or suspense, and definitely cried! A lot!!


    Any additional comments?

    I think this book should be read by everyone, young and old. It reminds us of things we knew as little children but forgot, or perhaps never learned. I love how it teaches us to be kinder than is necessary. What a beautiful admonition.
