Audie Award Nominee, Children's Titles for Ages 8-12, 2013
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.

“Wonder is a book with such a big, wide heart - it shows how we are all fragile, imperfect, and perfectly beautiful creatures. A wonderful novel by a wonder of a writer!” (Julia Alvarez, author of Return to Sender, Before We Were Free, Finding Miracles, and the Tía Lola Stories)
Say something about yourself!
This is a great book! I started listening with my son, but found myself listening to it with out him. August has strength he doesn't even know he has. Great characters and a good lesson in not judging a book by it's cover.
Wonder is an entertaining and amazing story. It is performed beautifully in this audio production. I would highly recommend it for readers young and old!
I liked it and it is a good story the narrator had a scratchy voice but I liked it on a scale of 1-10 1 being the worst book ever and 10 being the best book in the world I would rate it a 10
