Publisher's Summary

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.

What the Critics Say

“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)

    "Love Wonder!"
    What did you love best about Wonder?

    I love how the book teaches lessons about what it means to be different and trying to fit in,


    Any additional comments?

    I love the book, but dislike the audio version of the story. The voice for August makes him seem more annoying as a character, and I didn't find him as annoying when I was reading the novel.

    "Awesome!"

    It took me a little while to get used to the reader's voice. It reminded me of Marge Simpson which kind of threw me off. I loved the story though! This is a great coming of age story with excellent life lessons. I would highly recommend it! Now I want to use Mr. Brown's precepts in my classroom!

    R.J. Palacio has made a truly amazing book. I also didn't mind how they did August's voice. Some other people hated it, but I didn't mind at all!
