Publisher's Summary

For everyone who grew up loving R.J. Palacio's Wonder comes a hilarious, heartbreaking, and magical YA debut about what it means to accept the body you're given. 

Morgan was born with a hole in her middle: a perfectly smooth, sealed, fist-sized chunk of nothing near her belly button. At 16, she's tired of keeping her physical abnormality a secret. One night, after a lifetime of hiding behind lumpy sweaters and a smart mouth, she decides to bare all. 

At first, she feels liberated. But the fallout is more than she bargained for. A few photos snowball into a media frenzy, and suddenly she is desperate to get back to her own strange version of normal. 

But between hospital visits, Internet celebrity, and a disintegrating relationship with her best (and only) friend, normal is slipping further and further away. Then a new doctor appears with a boy who may be both Morgan's cure and her destiny. 

What happens when you meet the person who is - literally - your perfect match? And is being whole really all it's cracked up to be?

So Many (Plot) Holes

Couldn't finish it. Great narrator besides the occasional mispronunciation, but the story was full of holes. Maybe that was a thematic choice to go with the main characters struggle. But it was a mostly self imposed struggle, since there was nothing really wrong with the main character. Other than a malformation of the body that is far outstripped by thousands of others, she didn't even have any real health issues. Her situation was self inflicted and superficial. It might have been an interesting idea at heart, but the end result was disappointing.
